As part of our children’s development it is important that they become aware of the concept of money, not only for their own wellbeing, but also how fund-raising can help people less fortunate than themselves. Year 4 have chosen to support the charity Send a Cow in the campaign called Harvest for Life.
Send a Cow is a Christian charity that works hand in hand with rural families across East Africa so that they can grow enough food to feed themselves, sell produce and develop livelihoods that last. Harvest for Life campaign is designed to help some of the poorest farmers in Africa feed their families.
Each child has been given a plastic container to fill the cup with loose coins. £30 could buy the seeds, tools and training to set up an allotment. £100 could buy a bicycle, boots and a barrow. These gifts will help families to have a better future.
