Empowerment: Giving gifts that support long-term well-being, such as education or job training, can empower individuals to break the cycle of poverty and improve their economic circumstances.
Social connections: Gifting can help to strengthen social connections and create a sense of community, providing a supportive network for those who are struggling with poverty.
