Pile of poo

WAS £12.00 £6.00

Product description

Living in poverty, families can struggle to put food on the table and support their loved ones. But the chance to earn a decent income can change everything. That’s why Oxfam provides training – in things like effective, eco-friendly composting – to help people grow more food to eat and sell. It’s why we provide chickens and pigs to help families get started. And we help farmers with brilliant, poverty-busting ideas to share them with others. Gifts like this one make it all possible. In Rwanda, Oxfam has been helping women in poor families by installing biodigesters near their homes. These convert poo from their pigs to gas, which in turn makes cooking a lot easier, quicker and safer than using firewood – freeing up essential time for women to earn a living.

This gift supports our Making a Living (ML) projects.

This gift in action

Pile of poo

Christine was having to spend a long time collecting firewood and cooking. Her house filled with so much smoke that it was putting her health at risk. Now things are different. Christine has some pigs and a biodigester that turns pig poo into gas for cooking. It has made a huge difference to her quality of life. Christine no longer has health problems and her time has been freed up to spend on her tailoring business and with family. “The biogas has helped me have more time with my husband,” she says. “And to share and exchange ideas on new projects and business.”
