Another cow for Zambia! This time from the Illinois. We are happy that 4 children, Addison, Zoe, Tori and Coco saved money from the sale of eggs to buy one heifer for our poor farmers in Zambia! What a wonderful gesture.

We really appreciate the gift of $125 from 12 year-old Kyle from Southern California. He wants the cow or ox to be called Norman (in honor of the cow from the movie City Slickers). Kyle, we are going to do just that in western Zambia. You will be notified and we hope to get a photo of Norman!

We received one more donation for a cow from three children - Sydney, Chloe and Riley Suckling.  Thanks, kids!  What a wonderful and thoughtful gift.  We provide cattle for families in Zambia and Kenya currently.

LifeNets started providing cattle for Zambians in 2001. There has always been a strong link between children and the cows. Children in the poorest of all countries are the biggest beneficiaries of the cattle.  Cows provide milk, a much-needed and lacking part of their diet.

We are expanding the model of our Zambian cattle program to Kenya and Zimbabwe.  We need your help in stocking the original heifers and bulls.  Would you like to help? You can make a donation with your favorite child in mind. Send your tax-exempt donation to
