An incredible cow


Farmers in rural Africa can face an unreliable future. Without the right seeds, tools and training, making a living from the land can be tough. In this already vulnerable environment, cows can be an important investment.

Your gift could help a farmer start keeping cattle, train them how to look after their livestock and get the right price at market – so they can support their family.

How it works

Each alternative gift includes a beautiful postcard recognising the contribution made in the recipient's name. It describes how the gift will support education in the communities we work with.

  • Choose an alternative gift
  • If you'd like your gift sent directly to a friend: add a personal message in the box below (to be handwritten on your behalf), then tell us their address on the next page
  • Or, we can deliver a blank card straight to you, so you can add your own greeting

All of our gifts represent aspects of real long-term projects in rural Africa. As the need for funding and support can change within each community we partner with, your gift will be used wherever it is needed most.

Build Africa has become part of the Street Child family. This gift supports Build Africa projects in Kenya and Uganda, and will also be matched by the UK government to support Street Child’s ‘Mind The Gap’ UK Aid Match appeal.
