This Sunday the 21st of March is World Poetry Day. Poverty charity Send a Cow are celebrating by bringing prose from a Ugandan farmer's group.

This ties in closely with the charities programmatic work as education in reading and writing are very much at its heart.

It's not a commonly known fact that not only to they promote education in Africa but they also run educational schemes in the UK. These are brought to children in UK schools with names including Grow it Global and Read to Feed.

Through this work the poverty charity educates children about world cultures and how other people live. The themes covered include agriculture, environment and climate change studies.

The charity know that this helps people to understand how and that they can indeed give assistance to some of the most impoverished people in Africa.

Poetry is often used in Send a Cow programmes in Africa and take place in drama and poetry workshops. The issues they address demand a sensitive approach as they include subjects like gender and HIV/AIDS.

Send a Cow believe that poetry and drama can act as a release for people who might find it otherwise hard to communicate their feelings.
