Cambodia is one of the world’s poorest nations with a high percentage of the population living in the rural areas.
Almost all of these rural families dream to own a cow but the reality is that at around $650US a cow, 80% of families will never be able to afford one.
WE ARE A “COW BANK”!
Cows for Cambodia is essentially a “COW BANK” We loan families a pregnant cow, they must look after it and when it has the baby they get to keep the baby and we take our cow back. It’s more about providing an opportunity to break the poverty cycle rather than a direct handout. Each family signs a contract to ensure our cow is looked after and strict rules are followed to ensure the best outcomes for all parties.
The success of this project has been overwhelming, so much so that the long term goal is to have 1,000 cows in the project which will make Cows for Cambodia one of Asia’s biggest Agriculture charity projects. But we need your help!!!! Head to www.cowsforcambodia.com for more details on how you can help.
