Send a Cow

Send a Cow is a charity based in the UK. It works in seven African countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Zambia and Lesotho. Send a Cow’s programmes provide a proven package of on-going support and practical training, including farming skills, gender equality, sanitation and money management – alongside livestock, seeds and tools – to ensure some of Africa’s most marginalised people have the confidence, knowledge and skills to help themselves out of poverty.
