Let your pupils learn about sustainable development this way. We are buying the three animals through Oxfam's Unwrapped gift catalogue (www.oxfamunwrapped.com) which has a range of present ideas for everyday life, health and education in the developing world. To win the chance to make the difference to a family in Africa, just answer this question. Oxfam was founded, and is still based, in which British city?
Here's a giveaway with a difference. Friday magazine is buying a camel, a cow and a goat from the charity Oxfam to give to families in Africa on your behalf. By donating a working animal you can help a family begin to earn a sustainable living and give their children a better chance of going to school. Camels are the workhorses of the desert, able to survive in extreme conditions, capable of carrying huge loads; they can even be milked in times of drought. As well as milk, cows provide manure for crops, and importantly, calves which can be sold for much-needed income. Goats, too, supply milk and offspring; the first female kid is given to another family to start the whole process again.
