Alternative Christmas Gifts

Leave a comment

TVC’s sister poverty reduction charity, the High Five Club, has just launched an Unwrapped Gift Scheme in time for Christmas. So if you’re worried about buying something for the person who already has everything, why not choose this alternative route?

Log onto the High Five Club website and buy a year’s High Five Club membership for a friend or relative (or as a life changing present to yourself!). Or for just £5 you could buy the gift of an egg-laying chicken for a community-owned poultry project in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley – which provides a valuable protein source for a communty that is lucky if they get to eat meat 5 times a year – or, for £10, a stake in the building of a new classroom block for Kamanga Community School in  Zambia’s biggest slum area of Lusaka – a school set up by the community themselves to provide an education for orphans and vulnerable children. 

So do support the High Five Club’s charitable work – all aimed at “changing lives in Africa, £5 at a time” through giving communities in poverty a ‘hand up’ (as opposed to a ‘hand out’).
