There are many local and international faith-based charities that provide non-traditional gift giving opportunities worthy of our generosity. Here are several unique ways we can reach out to the needy in San Diego and around the world.
Goat and 2 chickens
A gift of a pair of chickens and a goat will provide a steady supply of eggs, milk, and meat to feed children and help families in Africa. It’s a gift that keeps on giving. $100.
An ecological latrine from San Diego-based Plant with Purpose offers the gift of health by reducing water pollution and the possibility of water-related illness in third-world countries. This composting latrine takes what would otherwise be waste and transforms it into a valuable source of fertilizer for farms. $300.
Often located near a church or Bible college, Gospel for Asia’s Jesus Wells are constructed by local builders and can save an entire village from waterborne illness in India. They also provide opportunities for missionaries to share the love of Jesus with villagers seeking clean water. $1,400.
Train an African teacher
Provide professionally illustrated Bible lessons based on the Old and New Testaments for use in public and private schools in a number of African countries. Teachers are trained to engage students from a variety of cultural backgrounds to help them develop character qualities such as honesty and perseverance. $125.
