About

Every family who receives a gift from Send a Cow promises to pass on a gift to another family in need. Whether it’s the first female calf, seeds, saplings or skills, each gift starts a chain of giving that continues to grow and grow. Importantly, they become donors themselves, restoring their dignity and pride.

When you give to Send a Cow programmes, you are doing more than just helping desperate people escape hunger. Your support improves the health, education, housing and happiness of a whole community as skills are shared and lives improved. As a result of your donation, women will be empowered and respected in their homes and their neighbourhoods, with the nourishment, confidence and money they need to become successful.

Our approach to poverty reduction is simple and effective and the difference your support will make will produce visible and tangible results from day one. It is not unusual to see dramatic changes in the health and wellbeing of the families in the Send a Cow programme within a matter of months – it is a truly inspirational journey to share.
