Extended African families, often very poor themselves, take in orphans. Help the orphans become a gain and not a drain by providing a two-goat "dowry" (or trust fund of a sort) that remains as long as the orphan stays with the family. The gain? Milk for everyone, and the opportunity to build up a herd of goats. In conditions unsuitable for goats, the dowry could be chickens or bees.

After placing an orphan and "dowry" with a foster family, the charities maintain the relationship and ensure the children are treated well. The orphans retain the rights to their "dowries," which remain with the foster family only as long as their foster child also remains.

Your donation through this Gift That Gives More™ helps to provide a dowry for an orphan in need.


Report from the Field

In 2010, The Charities Advisory Trust reported that their partners in Rwanda are calling this program "a particular success story, ensuring that children stay in school as they no longer have to drop out to begin earning to pay for the dowry."


About The Charities Advisory Trust

The Charities Advisory Trust is a registered UK charity set up over 25 years ago providing practical help to charities and pioneering new ways of charitable giving.
