Send a Cow has been working in Uganda since 1988, growing from just two staff members to 66 in 2016. We are currently working in 13 districts of Uganda, and in the years since we launched we have worked with over 40,000 households. 

 We work primarily with community groups reaching a high proportion of those most in need and marginalised from society. Our Impact in Uganda has been amazing. We are well known for delivering distinctive programmes that blend social development alongside farming systems and agriculture. It's this progressive approach to sustainable development that has enabled us to help some of Uganda's poorest communities and become resilient to shocks.



 But we want to do more. We want to work in more of Uganda's 113 districts; build new partnerships with organisations across the country to reach new areas, innovate further, and create richer projects.
