Via Christian Aid's Present Aid site - why not give Easter chicks with a difference?
"Popular Poultry: These birds can help pay for a child’s education.
You wouldn’t think that a simple brood of guinea fowl could change someone’s life. But, for families in the Mozambique, that’s exactly what they can do. Loan a couple of birds to a family and, before long, the birds have bred, produced chicks and plenty of protein-packed eggs. The family can then sell or barter the eggs and chicks and buy paper and pens for their children‘s education. The original loan can be returned to help a new family all over again."
