Your cow will transform the life of a family in Rwanda

For families struggling to feed themselves, milk to drink and a surplus to sell is a lifeline. And with cow manure to enrich the soil and nourish crops, families can grow even more food.

Once a family's food is secure and they have a regular income their children can go to school. They can also invest in their farm and home.

Families like Stephanie’s are ready and waiting for their cow

Stephanie, 51 (above), was widowed in the Rwandan genocide. Although her home is in poor condition, she has 1.5 hectares of land and grows fruit and vegetables.

She has received training to care for livestock and grown the right crops to feed them. She’s already cleared her land and built a cow shed in anticipation

If I receive a cow, all my gardens will be even more productive because of manure. (I'll) have enough food for my family and surplus for the market.

Your gift will mean 20 families get the cow that will change their lives

Each cow costs £650. But anything you can give will make a big difference. Everyone who gives will entered into a draw to win the chance to name one of five cows (terms and conditions apply).
