Give the gift of milk … and so much more.
One cow gives up to 5,000 gallons — or 80,000 glasses — of milk in its lifetime. That’s a nutrition lifeline for a hungry child. But when a family receives a cow through World Vision, they gain so much more than just milk. They also get income from the sale of milk, a steady supply of manure to fertilize crops, and a renewed sense of hope for the future. And when a cow produces offspring, the sale (or gift) of a calf to a neighbor extends that hope to others.
For families like Umaira’s, in Bangladesh, a dairy cow can be a game changer: “When I grow big, I will be a teacher,” said Umaira (pictured at age 9). Her future is brighter now that her family has reliable income from selling milk and calves.
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
