Send a Cow gave a cow to Mary Kabiito, Director of Kakunyu School. Mulungi – meaning ‘Beautiful’, and my word, she is – provides full cream milk as well as poo and wee, ALL of which is fully used.

  • Her milk is used to give every child a mugful of creamy porridge every school day. As most of them don’t have anything to eat before coming to school, this means they get at least one good meal every day.
  • Her wee is sprayed onto the banana trees to keep the Banana Fly away.
  • Her poo is fed into an extraordinary biogas system which powers a light and a gas ring.
