Annual Report 2017-18

Send a Cow worked with 752,370 people in 2017-18, supporting vulnerable, poor, marginalised, African farmers out of poverty and malnutrition.

 

You helped us to raise £7.58 million, an increase of £0.66 million from the previous year. We have spent more of our funds on programme delivery than ever before, helping us to work with the most number of smallholder farmers we have ever worked with.

This year we celebrated our 30th anniversary. We kicked off the celebrations with a service at Wells Cathedral, where founding farmers, visiting African staff and supporters alike all came together to celebrate.

In September, a special event was held back where it all began, in Devon. Our Ethiopia Country Director, Aklilu Dogisson, joined founding farmer David Bragg to look back at the charity's history. "It was more than just sending cows," said David to the crowd. "It was about building peoples capacity and building their confidence."
