"Send a Cow's work is truly done in partnership with those that we serve in Africa. Seeing their work first-hand in Kenya helped me to see how passionate and caring our field staff are about walking alongside farmers, increasing their knowledge, their crop yields, their income and their ability to thrive in rural Africa. It truly is life-sustaining work that is making an incredible difference in the world, and I am so honored to support it."
