Enterprising Africa

A lot has happened since 1988, when we first sent cows to Uganda. Send a Cow is now much bigger than our name suggests.

Our programmes have developed to become a proven package of on-going support and practical training to ensure some of Africa's most marginalised people have the confidence, knowledge and skills to help themselves out of poverty.

We have helped over two million of the world's poorest and most marginalised people out of poverty, but there's still more work to do. 220 million people in Africa go hungry every day, with nearly half living on less than 80p a day.

Enterprise Africa, our strategic plan, seeks to answer two questions:

How can we deepen our impact at household level in each country by improving the effectiveness of our programmes? 
How can we scale our work to a point where we are working with one million people a year in rural Africa, whilst building upon the quality of our impact? 


This document explains how our country teams in Africa have come together to unite behind our vision and deliver a clear plan for Enterprising Africa, that sees us attempt to answer these challenges.
