Duck - AUD $27

Oxfam Australia


Ducks provide families in Bangladesh with eggs that they can eat and sell at the market. These eggs can also turn into more ducks which in turn, produce more eggs! Many of the people who receive a duck from Oxfam use the money they earn to pay for their education which then helps them end the cycle of poverty.“We have been rearing ducks here since 2013 ... This year so far we’ve earned 5,340 taka [AUD $90] selling duck eggs ... But we can also eat the duck eggs. Our food source is secure ... I can now pay for my household costs. I’m also farming chillies! I rent agricultural land from my egg sales profits.”— Shumati Rani, Golna village, Bangladesh
