“Just like our practical approach in Africa, we believe that the best way to help children find out about the world is through learning by doing.
That’s why our projects focus on hands-on activities that often take pupils outside of the classroom, and involve creating something special for your school that adds to global learning and gives your pupils something to remember.”

‘Growing my seeds was brilliant.
When I could pick what I’d grown it was really exciting.
I feel so proud of my Bag Garden!’

Cowforce – for children and their teachers
Cowforce.com is our award winning interactive website for kids, designed to be used by children at home or at school.
Created with the help of children, the site gives an introduction to life in Africa, living in poverty and the work of Send a Cow. Using animations, interesting facts and a fun approach, your kids will love it!
“Cowforce in an immensely creative effort and shows a real in-depth understanding of its younger target audience. It is a great example of how NGOs can be more relaxed about their messages, yet still get across difficult ideas.”
Jon Snow, broadcaster.
Cowforce for teachers
You will find a unique ‘Teacher Tab’ on many of the pages of Cowforce.com, showing you lesson plans and learning resources that are relevant to the page that you are on. A good place to start on the site is the ‘Goatacycle Diaries’ of Tazo the goat from his tour of Africa, or the ‘Four African Tales’ animations that help to explain our work in a fun way.
