In Rwanda: Save a Cow, Save a Family

In Rwanda: Save a Cow, Save a Family


Emmanuel’s dream is to bring affordable, accessible veterinary services to Rwandans whose livelihoods rely on the health of their dairy cows.

In Rwanda, cows are not just animals but a household industry providing milk for children’s nutrition, family income, fertilizers for high crop production and emotional healing for lonely genocide survivors. Unfortunately, Rwandan farmers lose cows to disease because they lack access to quality veterinary services. Further, when these services are available, farmers pay exploitative rates.


My CowMax centers will keep the cows alive and healthy to serve families. CowMax will make its services affordable by implementing an innovative “risk-pooling” health insurance fund. My franchised centers will also create 600 new jobs.

Long-Term Impact

Dairy cows play an integral role in Rwanda by providing families with nutrition and income. Keeping cows healthy and productive means improving the livelihoods of men, women and children.
