  • Project Goal: Fund 17 more cows by year-end 2018, bringing the total of Pipeline-funded cows to 50 Cost: $15,000
    • $880 for one cow
    • (1/2 cow) $440
    • 1/3 cow $294
    Purpose/Benefit: Rwandan genocide destroyed communities, broke trust and shattered relationships, leaving vulnerable people without a safety net. The process of reconciliation requires issues to be addressed holistically—poverty, malnutrition and family relationships cannot be separated. The Cows for Peace project uniquely touches on all these points as it unites different programs of CARSA. Designed as a three-step approach, this program starts with trauma healing and forgiveness workshops, and ends by providing an impoverished offender and survivor of genocide with the shared responsibility of owning a cow. After workshops and reinstating community, a cow is given to the survivor and the offender. It stays with the survivor’s family, but both share the responsibility of caring for it, bringing the offender’s family to visit regularly. The first calf that is born is given to the offender’s family in a communal ceremony as a sign of restored relationships. Because poverty is one of the biggest obstacles to reconciliation, these issues must be addressed together. Cows provide milk, manure for fertilizer and biomass, and (after reproduction) meat; thereby strengthening the beneficiaries’ incomes and giving reason for hope for the future. Cattle-breeding is a status symbol in the Rwandan society and restores the self-esteem of the beneficiaries. The goal of Cows for Peace is to enable all participants to experience a trustful cooperation between former opponents and improve their personal circumstances as well as those of society as a whole. This experience causes a sustainable difference in the attitude, mindset and behavior patterns of the participants and thereby fosters unity and rehabilitation in Rwandan society.
