From as little as £9, you can make an extraordinary difference this Christmas. All We Can's Extraordinary Gifts directly support their partners to bring about positive, long-term change in some of the world's poorest communities. Simply choose a gift for a friend or family member from their selection and they'll send you a colourful card for you to personalise and give. You will be giving sustainable solutions to poverty.
Over the next two weeks, we will feature some gift ideas from their catalogue on our website. As one example for now, £9 could provide an Ethiopian farmer with fruit tree seedlings and training in how to manage fruit trees, providing a source of income and a more nutritious diet for the entire family. All We Can's partner is ADHENO, Ethiopia. It's focus is supporting farmers to rehabilitate degraded land and increase their yields and income.
