BENEFITING: Reach The Children
Malnutrition affects 32.5 percent of children in developing countries and more than 26 percent of the world's malnourished children live in Africa. We give a pregnant cow to a Kenyan family as part of a micro-loan project. They must learn about how to care for, shelter and feed the cow. To repay the loan, they give 2 calves to two other families who complete the same steps. They then keep other calves born to that cow. Cows provide milk with protein-energy to fight malnutrition. Funds from the sale of milk provide other necessities of life.
