Providing training in sustainable farming in Africa
Send a Cow is a Christian charity founded in 1988 by a group of UK farmers, who wanted to help families suffering from the aftermath of war in Africa.
They sent livestock in the hope that this would help African farmers to overcome the crippling poverty and malnutrition being experienced in their communities.
It is now a well established charity, running sustainable agricultural programmes across Africa.
Where are Send a Cow based?
Send a Cow's head office is based in the UK, but it also has offices in four African countries and works closely with a wide range of partners and community groups.
At the core of its values is equal treatment to all people in need, regardless of their race, gender or creed.
The charity encourages beneficiaries of the charity to pass on their knowledge, skills and livestock to other families, so that your initial donation will keep filtering out and transforming more and more people’s lives.
This hope for long term improvement is symptomatic of Christian charity Send a Cow’s approach – they typically work with communities for approximately five years, to ensure that any improvements made are sustainable and that your donation lasts.
As well as providing training in sustainable farming methods and animal welfare, Send a Cow also offers training on social issues such as HIV and AIDS awareness, gender equality, and conflict resolution.
Send a Cow relies on the generous donations of people like you – please help, and buy a gift with Send a Cow today.
