Position in organisation
What does your organisation do?
Established 25 years ago, Send a Cow is an international development charity that enables poor farmers in Africa to become self-reliant by providing them with livestock, training and advice. We work in 7 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, hand in hand with poor families, teaching them the skills they need to build new lives free from poverty and hunger. By providing training, livestock, seeds and support, we aim to restore hope and create stronger communities for the future. In turn, these families then pass on young livestock, seeds or training to others. And so on. This ‘Pass it On’ principle not only builds stronger communities, it allows us to help even more people to develop skills, confidence and self respect.
Send a Cow doesn’t offer a quick fix solution to poverty and rural development. We typically work with groups of farmers for five years to effect substantial and sustainable change. We also acknowledge from the outset that issues such as gender equality, health and family harmony are just as vital to the success of development programmes in Africa as simple livestock provision.
