PM Modi gifts cows to villagers at Rweru Model Village

Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Rweru Model Village in Rwanda and gifted 200 cows to villagers, under the Rwandan Government's Girinka Programme. Under this scheme, poor families are gifted dairy cows and the first female calf born of the cow is gifted to the neighbour. The word Girinka can be translated as ‘may you have a cow’ and describes a centuries-old cultural practice in Rwanda.
