Winnifred's story

22-year-old Winnifred lives in a small Ugandan village called Nagamuli. Her family joined a Send a Cow project group in 2016, back when Winnifred’s family were struggling to earn an income and when Winnifred’s biggest dream was for every girl in her village to go to school.

“Most parents cannot afford to pay school fees to keep girls in school...Many [get] pregnant because parents don’t have a decent source of income”

Since completing their Send a Cow training, Winnifred’s family have been able to farm their own land successfully. They are now eating well and earning an income through selling their surplus vegetables, which has enabled Winnifred’s parents to send her younger siblings to school. This Christmas, Winnifred’s family are no longer hungry and her dream is to now watch television and celebrate together with her family.

Raise £155 this Christmas, and help break the cycle of poverty so that girls like Sanifa can realise their dreams too.

Raising £155 could enable a family to complete one of our transformative projects in Uganda, giving girls like Sanifa the chance to stay in school

Our projects provide families with all of the seeds, tools and training they need to escape poverty for good. Once they are confidently growing crops and feeding their families, mothers like Sanifa’s will generate income from selling vegetables and produce at market. At last they will be able to buy their children essential supplies like uniform and books, so that girls like Sanifa can go to school and realise their dreams.
