Win A Burt’s Bees Collection

When I was approached to be a part of a campaign to talk about the work that Send A Cow are doing for developing communities, I was happy to be a part of spreading the news as they are ethically based and make such a positive impact on families and communities alike. 

Send A Cow are a charity who provide means for communities to grow and educate themselves to sustain a healthy small business, which will give them in turn not only food for their families but also the skills to run their own enterprise and share this knowledge with their communities.  I wanted to be part of this worthwhile campaign and for spreading the information about Send A Cow and for hosting the Burt’s Bees competition with Bath & Unwind they are donating a Beehive on my behalf to an African village. 

To us this may seem a small gesture, but in reality this can change a family, change a community, to become a thriving enterprise and a much needed source of nutrition. To get an idea of the essential services which are provided by  Send A Cow charity, take a look below and for more information take a look at their websites. As part of this campaign and to pair with the donation of the Beehive, I also have a great pampering Burt’s Bees gift set to give away to one reader from Bath & Unwind, all you need to do is enter following the link to the Rafflecopter competition page.

Send A Cow

The UK based charity Send A Cow help African families to thrive in their communities every year by providing livestock and training to families. Utilising the land they already have and learning about organic farming are the steps for them to feed their families and develop the skills to sell and set up a sustainable small business which will last and be a pivotal change in their community. As well as providing families with livestock, Send A Cow also help to educate communities on all aspects of organic farming as well as providing courses in water harvesting, conflict resolution and also financial skills. Send A Cow not only provide locally sourced livestock to African families, but also beehives which they can harvest and sell the honey to have an important source of income and the business skills to teach the rest of their communities. 

For more information on the Send A Cow charity take a look at their website here.

Do They Really Send Cows?

“No we don’t physically send cows from the UK anymore, although we were founded when a group of farmers did originally send cows from the UK to Africa – hence our name! Then in 1996, there was a ban on importing European animals into Africa, so we began sourcing our animals locally. This also supports local markets, and reduces transport costs and journey times.”

Building A Beehive

“Honey gives children good all round nutrition and with the extra income from selling honey, families can pay for school fees and buy medicine. We give this gift in Ethiopia, Lesotho and Uganda.”
