Do your own thing this autumn!

When the world is put on lockdown, we do not stop. Our families need us, now more than ever. And we need you. Together we can help protect families living in rural Africa from Covid-19 and support them to grow a brighter future. Help us to reach the most vulnerable and ensure that coronavirus has nowhere else to go.

How doing your own thing will transform lives in rural Africa...

Since April 2020 Send a Cow have provided families with greater training in hygiene and sanitation, whilst helping to spread the messages of coronavirus prevention to groups living in rural and remote communities.

Our response to coronavirus in rural Africa is two-fold:

First, we are increasing our WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) work. This includes training on Tip Taps – an ingenious way to wash hands when you have no running water. We are also using radio broadcasts and mobile phone technology to break down stigma and misinformation to ensure that no-one is left behind.

Second – and just as important – we are working with thousands of families to ensure they can be self-sufficient. So families don’t need to travel and interact with others for work or food, so they can look after their children at home and have seeds to plant this growing season. When this crisis is over, families will be in a strong and healthy position to build their own futures from the land.
