In Kenya and many parts of Africa the poor women that are left alone, the Widows, often have no means of self support, no means to feed their children, and are given no chance of survival as the village treats them as outcasts. Forced to sell their possessions or give themselves to another man just to survive they end up loosing everything. In the past they even had no rights to own the land they lived on!
It is our goal to change this! Over the last 4 years we have developed a program to help these poor widows by providing a method of self support that not only feeds the family but provides both a source of income and level of importance and respect in the community. We provide them with a DAIRY COW and the materials needed to build a shed and pen and pasture to care and feed the cow! For only $600 we can give each widow a cow and within months they are generating an income and feeding milk to their children. Approved and monitored by our regional veterinary officer, these cows grow, give birth, and the blessings multiply. That's right, one COW can change a life for an entire family FOREVER.
Please help! There are hundreds of needy widows that are loosing hope. It takes only one COW to change a life and change a family!
