Chickens are beneficial to every family in providing healthy, high protein food through their meat and eggs. Any surplus eggs can be sold in the community.

Chickens are a particularly good option for orphans as they’re easy to manage. They need little space and their droppings make great compost for thriving crops.

When you buy a gift from Send a Cow you're making a donation to help African farmers become self-reliant. Your gift is spent on our livestock and training programmes, across all the countries we work in.

As a young child I supplemented our family income by breeding rabbits and chicks and growing veg, so I know the value of Send a Cow’s work.

Families also learn how to build the best chicken houses so that happy, safe chickens keep laying and their manure is easily collected. We give this gift in Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda and Uganda.
