Hold an African Coffee Break

Host a coffee morning with a difference!

Get together with friends or family over coffee this autumn. Whether it's a coffee morning with friends, coffee and cake with colleagues or a bigger event in your community, your African Coffee Break could help coffee farming families to grow their own futures, on their own land, on their own terms.

Life-Changing Coffee

Doretha, Ethiopia
For many families in rural Africa, having the tools and training to grow coffee can be life-changing.

Send a Cow provide many families who join our projects with the seeds, tools and training to grow coffee. Some families will even receive a cow, so that their land can benefit from precious manure. Cow manure fertilises the soil. This helps grow vegetables and good quality coffee beans that families can sell, earning a vital income. Families also receive vital protein from drinking nutritious milk. Through the sale of coffee, people can fight hunger, earn a living and send their children to school. With your support, we can help coffee farming families to grow their own futures – on their own land, on their own terms.
