The original Send a Cow gift. A cow isn’t just for Christmas: for farmers and their families in rural Africa, it’s hope for a brighter future.

A cow makes a huge difference to a family and has been an important part of our work since 1988. One cow can produce over 3,000 litres of milk a year and is a vital source of income and nutrition for families in the poorest parts of rural Africa. A cow’s manure is also an excellent fertiliser that can be used on the land, helping crops to thrive. One or two cows placed within a sustainable farm system can actually be carbon neutral.
