We are sending a herd of cows to Africa with our totally amazing charity partner Send a Cow. Founded by farmers in the UK at the height of the milk crisis in 1988, Send a Cow is an international development charity with a difference. It works hand in hand with some of Africa’s poorest communities, encouraging them to decide which families need help to thrive.
Opilio Digital Recruitment Agency and Send a Cow
We are proud to be Silver Partners with a charity that is empowering some of the world’s poorest communities to tackle some of life’s toughest challenges together. Over the last 30 years they have helped over 1.3 million people work their way out of extreme poverty. They provide livestock, tools, seeds and training as part of a programme giving people the hope and means to establish a future for themselves, their families and their wider communities.
As a job agency, we wanted to find a unique way of contributing to this massively worthwhile cause and we decided to donate a portion of our profit. We’ve been operating in the digital recruitment and executive recruitment industry for nearly two decades and felt it totally appropriate to give a little back every time we fill a role. With that in mind we sat down and the whole agency agreed to guarantee that with every permanent placement we make, we will donate some of our profit, enabling us to send a cow to a family in Africa.
Our Cow-O-Meter 2017 target
We’re committed to donating 55 cows during 2017 and even have a Cow-O-Meter in the office to measure our progress! As well as donating from our day to day recruitment agency activity profits, our team have also totally embraced the charity and will be taking part in various fundraising events. We’ll be blogging these and our first event is from our Digital Recruitment Consultant Jag Gill who is taking part in the Two Castles run on 11th June 2017. The run takes place between two of England’s most beautiful castles – Warwick Castle and Kenilworth Castle
