Chickens can be a life-changing addition to a family in rural Africa.

Not only do they provide high protein eggs, but any surplus can also be sold in the community for a vital income. Chickens are a particularly good option for families looking to make quick improvements to their farm as they’re easy to manage and need little space. Their droppings make great compost for richer soil and thriving crops.

  • When you buy a gift from Send a Cow, you’re making a vital donation to help families develop their own solutions so they can grow a better future including tools, livestock and training. Your gift is spent wherever the need is greatest across the countries we work in, making a huge difference to the lives of families living in some of the poorest regions of rural Africa.

The chickens help in so many ways. I always have eggs for when a child is hungry! If we need to pay for school fees or materials, I can sell a chicken so I can easily afford what is needed.
