In areas where a dairy cow is not suitable, a local cow can be a blessing for a poor family. As well as reaping the benefits of manure for their crops, farmers can breed these African cows with high quality bulls to produce generations of excellent crossbreeds.

Families can use the offspring to help plough their fields or sell them at market to generate income.

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.

For our 25th wedding anniversary we thought the best gift was one which would last – not just for us but for whole communities. A Send a Cow gift was the obvious choice!

Did you know?

When a local cow is given, the first female calf is passed on to another needy family in the community and so the benefits of your gift continue on and on. We give this gift in Uganda.
