The Team

Every year the Security Institute Chairman chooses a charity partner that the Institute supports. This year we are proud to support Send a Cow.

Send a Cow was set up by a group of Christian dairy farmers from the UK in 1988. Outraged at EU milk quotas, which were forcing them to slaughter healthy dairy cows, and in response to an appeal from Uganda for milk, they embarked on a project, which was set to become an innovative and practical charity. Uganda was just emerging from a long civil war, communities and their farmland had been destroyed and much of the country’s livestock wiped out. Several of the UK farmers flew to Africa to investigate how they could help.

In 2017 the charity Emerge Poverty Free merged with Send a Cow. Together they support even more families in Africa, empowering them to secure their own futures and helping them to lift themselves from poverty.
