This post is part of the Twelve Days of Oxmas series which will run from the 1st to the 16th of December 2015. The series showcases some of the many Oxfam Unwrapped gifts we have on offer in store. Find out more by reading this post.

We couldn’t do a series on Oxfam Unwrapped without talking about goats. Goats have become somewhat of a symbol for Oxfam Unwrapped – it is the gift that epitomises the system. Of course, as we have seen already in this series, Oxfam Unwrapped is about a whole lot more than just giving goats to villages in needs. But goats are still important. And pretty damn cool as well.

The goat gift as simple as it sounds. For just £25 you can buy a locally sources, fully vaccinated goat for a family. The goat can provide the family with milk – for either drinking or selling – and that all important magical crop-boosting manure. Thus, the goat gift not only provides a family with much needed resources, but it also can act as a business for the family. What’s more, when the goat has kids, those kids can be passed on to another family in need, creating a lovely, sustainable, helpful goat cycle.
