Today is World Soil Day and as part of the renowned BIG GIVE double your donations week, let's dig deep and help more women and children to grow healthy and happy.
In The Sreepur Village, we train our mothers in Sack Gardening and, combined with literacy classes, this really does give them food for thought.
Growing their own vegetables in sacks means they know exactly what nutrients they are getting and from what vegetables, and the best bit is... they can take the sacks with them wherever they go. This is essential when you live in a climate that, in a flash, can destroy everything you own.
With nutrition in mind, our aim is to empower more women with the right ingredients that are needed to provide and sustain a healthy future for their families.
This year's BIG GIVE campaign is called 'Health and Happiness' which will help 350 children by providing them with the right medical care that will protect them and keep them health and happy for the future.
Any donation made online today and until Tuesday December 10, will be DOUBLED. That mean's more families can be given the chance to live a healthy and happy future.

As The Sreepur Village has protective measures in place to welcome new families during the Covid pandemic, we would like to share with you a story of why these mothers are in desperate need of our shelter, food and care.
Until Monday, we were unable to admit any new families to The Sreepur Village, but as identified cases of the virus are increasing daily, we are now able to safely admit some impoverished families who are in desperate need of shelter, food and care.
As Small Charities and Volunteers’ Week both fall in June, one of our long-standing supporters, Andy Bennett, has kindly offered to share with us her experiences with The Sreepur Village charity from the initial concept in the 1980’s to the current village today, which helps keep together 150 impoverished mothers and their 300 children, empowering families with hope for a brighter future:
