Trócaire Gift of a Goat

by | Dec 4, 2013 | Justice Archive, Trócaire, Trocaire Gifts, ZZ_All

Your thoughtful gift of a goat can do much more than provide food and an income for a family in need.

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, people are slowly rebuilding their communities and resettling their families after a war that has cost over five million lives.

Your gift is one that can last generations.

The offspring from your gift can be passed to other families in the region, uniting communities torn apart by war.

The income earned from a goat helps to improve a family’s diet, pay for education, provide healthcare and provide a sense of empowerment.

This gift is part of our Livelihood’s programme.


Each Trócaire Gift is sourced locally and sustainably from the country where it is needed. So the gifts not only support families in the world’s poorest places, they grow the local economy too. You will receive a card as a symbol of the Trócaire Gift you have purchased. You can then give this card to a friend, family member or client to explain the meaning of the gift. Alternatively an e-card can be emailed directly to your chosen recipient.

When you buy online, you can choose either a traditional gift card or an e-card. The traditional card will be posted out to you, or if you choose to send an e-card, it will be emailed to your chosen recipient immediately or at a time you schedule. Your e-card can be sent to anyone you choose – a friend, family member or client. You can enter a personal message alongside a description of how your gift will support families and communities in the developing world..

You can buy Trócaire Gifts cards in person at selected retail outlets countrywide, by phone, by post, and by fax. Full information of where and how to purchase your gifts is available on our Trócaire Gifts Buy Offline page.
