Chickens are beneficial to every family as they provide eggs and chicks.

In rural Africa, extreme weather caused by the climate crisis such as drought and heavy rain, is making it difficult for families to grow enough to eat and put nutritious meals on the table. Chickens can be an egg-cellent addition to a home. Not only do chickens provide delicious and nutritious eggs to keep children healthy, but any leftovers can also be sold in the community for a vital income. Chicken droppings also 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.

Since rearing chickens, not only can we eat eggs at home, but we can also make money! We use chicken droppings on our plants in the garden such as bananas and vegetables and they are growing much better."
