Grow brighter futures - every day
Every day families like Zemuye’s are working hard to feed their children and grow a brighter future for them.
With severe drought followed by heavy rain, she struggles to grow enough to eat and her family often go hungry.
It’s not just Zemuye.
There are many other women like her who are battling the effects of climate change and extreme poverty. That’s why we stick with families for at least 3 years. With your support they learn how to improve the quality of their land, grow enough to eat, set up small businesses and invest in their futures.
You can reach women like Zemuye by making a monthly gift today and standing with them every day as they grow a life free from poverty.
From the joy of harvesting her first crop of nutritious vegetables, to a thriving garden with enough produce to sell; your regular gift will support families like hers every step of the way.
Families will no longer have to go hungry and they will become a force of change in their own lives.
What your donation could achieve each month…
Your monthly gift of £7 could give simple items like a fork, rake and hoe which can make a world of difference.
With the right tools, families can cultivate their land and use sustainable organic agricultural techniques. Small plots of land are transformed into thriving gardens that can feed the family for years to come!
Your monthly gift of £14 could provide training so a family can build a keyhole garden and grow enough food for three meals a day.
These gardens give fantastic results quickly and add nutritious vegetables to provide a balanced diet. The circular raised bed incorporates a central basket where compostable waste is placed along with used water from the kitchen.
Your monthly gift of £20 could provide ten tree saplings for families to create their own mini orchard.
Trees not only provide fruit and nuts to eat and sell, but shelter and shade for other crops; and the roots help prevent soil erosion – a climate friendly contribution for people and planet!
We felt that making a monthly donation made so much sense. It gives Send a Cow a steady, predictable income; it provides security for the farming families and the programmes they join; and it gives us pleasure to know that we are a reliable part of Send a Cow’s wonderful work. We have also been able to visit various projects in Rwanda, which was an amazing experience and only reinforced our feeling that Send a Cow does fantastic work.

Your regular donation will be used wherever the need is greatest to make a real difference to the lives of some of the poorest families in Africa. Thanks to your support, last year we were able to work with over 750,000 people. Thank You.
