Cows for Cambodia – Cambodia is one of the world’s poorest nations. All rural families dream to own a cow but the reality is that most families will never be able to afford one.
Cows for Cambodia is essentially a “COW BANK”. They loan families a pregnant cow, they must look after it and when it has the baby they get to keep the baby and they take their cow back. It’s more about providing an opportunity to break the poverty cycle rather than a direct handout.
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.
