Cattle Head Project

The Cattle Head Project promotes decent work and economic growth in the Governorate of Aswan and rural villages of Benban, Egypt.

The challenge

There are several local villages adjacent to the Scatec site in Benban. Livelihood improvement was early identified as a key priority area, as several households would benefit from additional income.

How we worked together

Working with local NGO Orman Association, Scatec provided one pregnant cow to 150 households in need, prioritising female-headed households. The households will generate income through selling milk and dairy products, as well as calves. As a long-term engagement, the project will be monitored for 2 years.
