Why take part?

By the second week in January, the average person in the UK will have created a greater carbon footprint than a single person in Ethiopia will account for in a whole year. Those who have contributed the least, are suffering the most from the effects of the climate crisis.

Use your footprints for good by taking part in Send a Cow’s virtual relay! You’ll be joining hundreds of supporters cutting their carbon and fighting for climate justice for families in rural Africa.

Whether you run, walk or cycle your target distance, every step you take will be contributing to our collective goal of travelling 30,000 miles - that's an incredible 60 million footprints for good! Send a Cow’s virtual relay will take you from the UK to Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and Zambia. Along the way, you’ll learn more about the families on the frontline of the climate crisis and how your donations will make a difference.

Your life-changing impact

Send a Cow is working alongside Anguwaliw and her family as part of our Developing Business Women project in the Kutaber District, Ethiopia. Our team are supporting Anguwaliw to ensure she has the tools and training she needs to fight the climate crisis and feed her family for the long-term.

Whether you walk, run or cycle, every mile completed and pound raised could bring hope to families like Anguwaliw's. Your £60 sponsorship could provide three families with the tools, seeds and training in sustainable farming, soil health and rainwater harvesting, so they can stand up to extreme weather and grow enough to fight hunger.


“I was born here, and as far as I can remember, the climate was better in the past. Climate change is a problem. Now, we have no produce; it is dry and there is no change. The climate is changing. The weather is warm. It was never warm here.”

Anguwaliw, Farmer Ethiopia
