Thanks to your support, education and training really is life changing

Learning centres in Sri Lanka

Education is the key to lifting childrenout of poverty. With your help, five learning centres were built in 2013. These centres today are used bychildren in Batticaloa on a daily basis for homework, art classes and English learning classes. These centres provide a quiet place for learning away from home under the supervision of a local volunteer.


Better farming in Zambia

Right across Zambia farmers use the traditional practice of recycling seeds to replant crops for the following year. But this results in diminishing yields,and their families end up struggling to survive on less and less.Your support for our Luangwa Integrated Agriculture project has helped 1,500 farmers receive training in how to farm for the changing conditions. As well as providing water for their farms, you have helped us to distribute 5kg of seeds to each farmer, plus fruit-bearing trees. As a result, their families and their children have a more stable future ahead of them.
