For over twenty years, Send a Cow has been helping thousands of African families and orphans out of poverty, working with them to grow enough food to eat, sell their produce and develop small businesses that last. Send a Cow provides cows in Africa, but it’s more than that: it revives sustainable agriculture techniques that have been long forgotten.
After a successful project in Uganda we're delighted the innocent foundation is now funding a new, three-year project in Kenya. Five new groups have been set up, covering 120 families and over 300 orphans, mostly in the west of Kenya. Training has been carried out in development values; sustainable, organic agriculture and basic skills for self-governance, mutual support and democratic working.
Send a Cow works closely with the families it supports, teaching them the skills they need to build new lives free from poverty and hunger and encouraging them to pass on the skills, seeds or livestock they’ve acquired to others in the community. This “Pass it On” principle not only builds stronger communities, it allows Send a Cow to help even more people to develop the skills, confidence and self-respect needed for a happy, healthy life.
