This coming autumn, why not join Ferne Corrigan and the South West charity Send a Cow in a Harvest Hero celebration. By getting involved this Harvest, you can help farming families across rural Africa to combat the effects of climate change and grow enough to eat.
Ferne, who describes herself on Twitter as a ‘science nerd, nature nut and occasional kids TV presenter’ decided to front the charity’s Harvest celebration to help more children to learn about how changing weather affects the food on our plates, and how they can help families in other countries during this global pandemic.
“Send a Cow is a really special charity. It helps people to help themselves. By doing that, you help to make sure that what they achieve is long term, and gives communities a secure future.
Working at a local level, you can see the difference that you make and it is really fantastic!”
The charity have done all the hard work for you – just visit sendacow.org/harvest and you’ll find everything you need to learn about how climate change is affecting children in rural Ethiopia.
You’ll also find superhero masks, African style bunting and a poster to help promote your Harvest Hero event!
Learn about the crops that African families grow and download the fundraising guide to earn yourself Send a Cow’s Gold, Silver or Bronze climate award.
A lucky school could even win a visit from Ferne to help celebrate their Gold fundraising status!
Send a Cow, which was set up 30 years ago by Christian dairy farmers from the South West has helped over 2 million people in rural Africa grow their own futures, free from poverty and hunger.
In response to the 1988 famine in Uganda the farmers sent their own cows to Africa, but now the charity helps family farmers through training in gender and social inclusion, sustainable agriculture and enterprise skills, which all have a positive impact on the local environment.
