Together, we can help families in Nepal overcome a mountain of challenges.

Right now, climate change is destroying lives all over the world. For people living in the extreme environments of The Himalayas, it’s hitting particularly hard.

Farming on this terrain is tough, made even tougher by flooding, landslides and droughts caused by climate change. Crops regularly fail, and now the coronavirus pandemic is disrupting farming and closing down markets.

Women like Junmaya face a gruelling daily routine of hiking up and down a dangerous mountainside, transporting heavy loads of crops to sell or water to drink.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

With your support, families can find improved ways to farm despite the challenging climate, access markets safely, use solar technology to store water and create flourishing businesses.

Together, we can empower communities to turn the tables on climate change, and overcome the mountain of problems they face every day.

JOIN THE TEAM MAKING CHANGE HAPPEN

We believe in possible

We know that ingenuity can tackle the world’s toughest problems. We’ve worked with communities to prove it’s possible to:

  • Turn desert into lush fields in Sudan, so farmers can thrive despite climate change
  • Replant areas of rainforest in Peru, so coffee growers can succeed sustainably
  • Turn plastic waste into fuel in Bangladesh, cleaning up slums and rivers and creating jobs

It’s what we’ve been doing for over 50 years.

But we need to do more

People living in poor communities have never faced such a tough reality.

  • Climate change has caused an increase in devastating floods, storms and landslides. We can help communities avoid disaster.
  • Permanent changes to temperature and rainfall are making farming almost impossible. We can help farmers adapt and thrive.
  • The long term impact of coronavirus is pushing millions deeper into poverty. We can help create jobs, improve incomes and boost businesses.

You support will help make this possible.

Your gift will go further than you imagine

Regular support through monthly giving will:

  • Provide us with the predictable income we need to embark on ambitious long-term projects with communities around the world.
  • Allow us to pioneer innovative approaches that can be replicated elsewhere, by other development groups and governments.
  • Enable us to unlock grants from large donors, such as the UK Government and UN bodies.

Feel part of the change

You’ll feel involved and inspired by the work your support is making possible.

  • We’ll bring you uplifting updates from the communities we work with, our teams who work alongside them and our technical experts.
  • We’ll keep you up to date with the progress and some of the big global issues through email updates and our supporter magazine
