Raising the Baa supports Ripple Effect since it is local to us and its roots stem from farming. Their original name, Send a Cow, describes exactly how the charity started over 30 years ago, by a Somerset farmer who air-freighted a herd of cows to Africa! Their means of helping has broadened hugely since then, so a name change was needed and became a reality in May 2022.
The charity’s vision is to see Africa confident and thriving, and supports this by giving communities the hope and means to secure their own futures from the land.
Ripple Effect design African-led solutions driven by the challenges that local communities tell Ripple Effect they face, working across six countries in East and Southern Africa, (Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Burundi and Zambia) to deliver lasting change for some of the poorest and most marginalised rural communities.
Their approach empowers families with the confidence, skills and self-belief to grow sufficient food and generate income whilst regenerating the natural environment, protecting ecosystems and enhancing biodiversity.
For every team building with sheep programme delivered Raising the Baa donates enough to help train at least one family to build a tip tap and take advantage of rainwater harvesting. The longer, more in-depth programme and more teams you invest in, the more families we can help 🙂
All proceeds go to Ripple Effect.
As the world unites to fight coronavirus, Ripple Effect is working to ensure that the most vulnerable communities in Africa don’t get left behind.
