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.

Life can sometimes throw unimaginable challenges at us, but it's the human spirit's resilience and determination that can lead to remarkable stories of triumph.
Lia's life is a testament to this spirit, marked by adversity, courage, and ultimate success. Lia's story draws parallels to other stories of perseverance, and highlights the crucial role of organisations like Sreepur Village in transforming lives.
Out of the blue, at the tender age of 13, Chia found herself sitting on a bridal stage, about to marry a man who was 35 years old. Her parents had arranged the match, finding the man from their nearby locality in Bhairab.
He was a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) businessman who occasionally sold vegetables and fruits on the street. Chia's aspirations and youthful dreams were abruptly interrupted by this sudden marriage. Instead of books, she found herself with kitchen utensils in her hands. She went from feeling like a princess to becoming a servant overnight.
