Marking significant milestones with friends and family is one of the joys of life.

By choosing to support Send a Cow through your celebration you will not only be sharing your joy with loved ones but also helping to give families in Africa many reasons to celebrate too! Stuck for ideas for your celebration? 

Idea 1: Why not buy a different animal for each table at your reception and use them for your seating plan names. Who will you choose to sit on the goat table!?

Idea 2: Build a whole flock of chickens for your guests, one each or one per table. Each chicken could provide up to 200 eggs a year for a family to eat and sell.

Idea 3: Buy a whole allotment - your gift could give a community the chance to grow their own vegetables, some to eat and some to sell.

Send a Cow | Josephine and John laughing

After 41 years of marriage and 6 children, Josephine and John from Uganda are able to eat regular, nutritious meals and feed their children and grandchildren thanks to Send a Cow. Learning how to keep a cow and grow vegetables from their land has been transformational for the whole family.

Today, Josephine and John plant and harvest a variety of nutritious crops. For Josephine, growing and eating these vegetables and drinking milk from their cow have been the most immediate benefits from the training and resources they’ve received from Send a Cow.

"The cow that was given to us, which has been generous with its manure, calved down recently and now we drink milk. We are growing younger each passing day. I sold surplus vegetables and was able to buy a phone. I also was encouraged to rear chicken where our grandchildren are able to get animal protein. We eat like kings. This is beyond our wildest dreams." -
