In the summer 2015, Mifuko Trust bought a Kenyan cow with the proceeds from two events – the Nordic Christmas Market in Nairobi 2014 and the Restaurant Day event in Helsinki in 2015. The cow now lives with a group of artisans in a rural village in Machakos County.
The artisans, her happy and proud caretakers, decided to name her Mifuko. Mifuko Trust paid for the vet expenses as well as the cowshed. The sale of Mifuko’s milk brings the artisans a new source of regular income, and our goal is that eventually all the self-help groups Mifuko works with will have their own domestic animals.
