Give ducks to a hungry family today, and they’ll benefit from hundreds of large, protein-rich eggs all year long. Extra duck eggs and hatched ducklings can be sold to buy medicine or help send a child to school.
A duck also offers valuable down-feathers, famous for their thermal insulation and padding — great for use in bedding materials and warm clothing, or to fetch much-needed income at the market. Ducks even produce fertilizer that can dramatically increase crop yields!
Ducks have made a big difference for Elna Lajo’s children in the Philippines. “It’s a blessing from God that we were chosen [to receive the ducks],” says the mother of seven children. Easy and inexpensive to care for, her ducks have become a “livelihood that will send the kids to school.”
Once Elna’s ducks multiply, her family will donate ducklings to help other hungry children and families in their community. “Our family is grateful that we are entrusted by World Vision to take care of the ducks,” says Elna.
Monthly giving: the simple way to make your donations do more. Give to the Animal & Agriculture Fund.
Monthly giving is the most effective way to help the children and families who need it most. It lowers costs and puts more of your money to work changing lives. Plus, your donations will be delivering the right solution at just the right time. And while your gifts are at work changing lives, you’ll get to see the power of your generosity through quarterly updates and the World Vision magazine.
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
