A sheep can help meet a surprising number of a person’s basic needs. For a family living in poverty, one sheep can change almost every aspect of their lives. That makes it an incredible gift!
A sheep provides wool, which can be used to make warm clothing and blankets to help a family survive even the harshest winter conditions. It also produces nutrient-dense milk that can be used for drinking or making into cheese.
Best of all, a sheep’s lambs, extra wool, and milk can be sold at market. The income a family earns from the sales can be used to send children to school, buy medicine, or whatever else the family needs.
One sheep can allow a family to move from struggling to make ends meet to stability and success. That makes it one of the best gifts someone attempting to escape the cycle of poverty could receive.
