Your gift of chicks in Kenya  –  €7.00 / £5.00

Chicks make great gifts for lots of reasons, not just because they’re cute and fluffy. They grow up to be one of the most useful resources for a family in need. And they produce more chicks, so it’s a gift keeps on giving!

In the poorest regions of Kenya, vulnerable people affected by disease and hunger struggle to provide food for their families and earn an income. Your thoughtful gift of chicks will provide eggs, a daily source of nutrition. They can be sold in local markets too, providing a helpful source of income.   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.
