Community Savings Kickstart
Cambodia, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Rwanda, Uganda
Making a Living
This kickstart equips a group of 10-12 people with training in financial literacy, savings practices, borrowing options, and small business start-ups. Members pool their savings to create capital they can borrow to launch family businesses or deal with emergencies. Also included in the gift are a lockbox and accounting ledgers.
HOW THE GIFT GUIDE WORKS
A PLAN IS MADE
with the community
Rather than just giving our partner communities what we think they need, we ask the community which items or programs their families will find most helpful. After calculating extra costs like the training and education that accompany each gift, we share those items and plans with you!
and send a greeting card.
Browse through the gifts and learn how each contributes towards a community becoming sustainable. For each item you purchase, you can choose a free greeting card, or print-from-home card or an e-card to send to your friends, family, or clients to recognize that a gift was made in their name. Each card explains how the specific gift will help a developing community.
RESOURCES ARE SENT
to the community
In-country staff work with their team, local markets, and small businesses to source manpower and resources. They then incorporate them into the community’s sustainable development strategy to ensure the gifts have the maximum impact.
And the community continues working toward graduation!
Each gift helps families and their communities achieve their goals and move from stuck to thriving. Since 1994, nearly 70 communities worldwide have graduated with FH Canada!
Dairy Cow donations are matched 1:2 by generous, anonymous Canadian donors. That means your gift of $160 will be beefed up with an additional $320 to a total value of $480. Now that’s making the most of your moola by teaming up with other Canadians. It’s an udderly good investment towards helping a farming family improve their nutrition and income with a Dairy Cow!
“My cow will reproduce, and I will give [a calf] to a neighbour. I am already benefiting [from] manure for my gardens!”
“We are excited for the future of our children. Our community is starting to look different!”
“I love the Gift Guide. It brightens my day! I am pleased to support this wonderful work. Reality is, together we're brightening the day for thousands!”
“My family has grown strong because of the milk! The income even helped us ride through a period of drought.”
