Every item purchased through Salvos Gifts empowers communities to lift themselves out of poverty. We take a holistic approach to poverty and development, considering the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of people, as well as the continuing involvement of women and men, girls and boys.

Each Salvos Gift contains life-changing possibilities such as sustainable livelihoods, improved health and purposeful education. Aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Salvos Gifts fund programs that work towards the alleviation of poverty in developing communities.
