One 1We Cow makes the difference
1We Cow Project Bangladesh | Until now 23 Cows donated
One cow makes a world of difference to a family in Bangladesh. Take for example the family of Minarul in Rajshahi, close to the Indian border. The family lives together with 4 other families to share housing and living costs. Minarul and his wife have three children: a 4 year old, a 6 year old and an 8 year old.
In 2011 they got the 1We Cow which changed their life enormously. Every day the cow gives about 7 liters of milk. By selling the milk they earn € 2 per day. They also save money by using the manure as fuel for cooking. Moreover the milk offers a constant source of vitamins and minerals to the family.
Thanks to the 1We Cow Minarul and his wife now have the money to send the eldest 2 children to school. The family decided to send them to an even better school a bit further away, where they also offer English classes. Because they know the importance of good education for the future of their children.
With his 1We Cow combined with a small micro credit Minarul got the chance to earn a structural income and create a better life for his family. 1We will invest the repayment of the micro credit in expanding and strengthening the projects in Bangladesh. With this project 1We strives for a sustainable form of agriculture.
A 1We Cow costs € 325. The funny thing is that YOU can pick the name!
By donating a part of a cow, she will have more names.
