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.

Clean hands, water and sanitation are always important to keep families healthy. Now more than ever.

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 🙂

  • Tip Taps are ingenious African hand-washers that help a family to wash their hands safely. 
  • By training a family and giving them the materials to harvest rainwater on their own land, crops can be grown successfully no matter when the rainy season comes. 

By 2025, our goal is to provide animal management training for 150 families.

Topics include:

  • Improved animal management 
  • Basic animal freedoms 
  • Training on drought resistant and high quality forage 
  • Animal feed preparation and conservation 
  • Community dialogues on importance of dairy for family nutrition 
  • Development of promotional materials for improved animal management practices 
  • All of which will help the families out of poverty, working together within their communities to achieve truly sustainable livelihoods.
