  • End poverty in the heart and on the land. Our approach to ending poverty is unique. We work hand in hand with families in Africa. We understand that poverty is more than just the day to day struggle of toiling on land that fails to produce. Many people believe that poverty has become part of their personality, and hold out little hope for change. We provide livestock and training in natural organic farming practices alongside courses in gender equality, conflict resolution and more. It’s a package that works. It's a package that families pass on to others. Send a Cow helps African communities find the riches in their own back garden so they can grow their own food to feed themselves and their families every day.
