Help Mothers in Rural Africa this Mother's Day

This Mother’s Day, show your mothers your appreciation and help transform the lives of mothers in rural Africa with one of our great gifts!

We’ve got a fantastic selection of Send a Cow gifts to choose from and better yet, they’re all gifts that do good. You can give struggling African mothers the chance to provide for their families and create lasting, positive change in their lives.

For as little as £9, our Feed a Child gift can help mothers give their children the healthy and nutritious meals they need to ensure proper development. And with an adequate and balanced diet to grow and learn, children can concentrate properly in school. Or for just £17 you could help ten families cultivate their own vegetable gardens- feeding entire families with our veg box gift.

A gift that gives on Mother’s Day is just the first step for many families in transforming their lives. With Send a Cow, your Mother’s Day gifts this year could be life-changing for people like Matseki.

"Send a Cow opened my eyes and I realised that I can make a living from agriculture."

Matseki lives in Lesotho and helps bring up her five grandchildren. With training and support from Send a Cow she’s been able to give her grandchildren a better start in life and ensure a brighter future for her entire family.

"Before Send a Cow, I was just a poor widow with no dreams and no ambition. Now I’ve got the confidence to look into the future."

From her small plot of land, Matseki now harvests a variety of her own vegetables including carrots and spinach. The family’s eating patterns have improved, and they eat a healthy and nutritious meal twice a day. Matseki sells any surplus vegetables at market for extra income.

Matseki works hard to make sure that her grandchildren can stay in school, “education is indispensable,” she says. The income she makes from selling her produce means she can buy them uniforms and shoes for school. Matseki’s biggest dream is to build herself a proper house. And thanks to Send a Cow supporters, her grandchildren can have ambitions now too - the two eldest hope to be a soldier and a nurse!

Giving a Send a Cow gift this Mother’s Day can help make stories like Matseki’s a reality for so many more people.
