I find it a good thing to give children when I feel that their lives have become too commercial. Bit of a reality check for them.
That was exactly my motivation for giving it as a gift rather than just sending in the money myself.

Just to clarify, this is not a solicitation for these two specific organizations - I just wanted to raise awareness of these types of programs and give people some ideas of how they could help out others. I hope that this will encourage giving through what ever avenue people are most comfortable with and perhaps tell others who don't visit this site about these types of programs.

Goats are particularly effective at destroying the landscape as they eat everything (I've seen villages where they have goats and there is nothing living around as all the grass, shrubs and bushes are eaten). The schemes need to make sure that the local area can support more goats etc before providing any.
I dont know what help they give to the recipients - ideally they need some education and information on caring for the animals.
