Income generation

Small grants:

To be able to support poor families we need to be able to give them some capital funding in the form of a small grant of £100 - £1000 to allow poor families to begin a small business


Donate to support the St Andrea development project here.


Rice production:

Experience has told us that a small grant of £300 to initiate a rice production project can really benefit a poor family, allowing them to start producing their own crop and in turn a profit from which they can re-seed as well as provide some support for their family.

The grant will allow the family to:
  • Purchase suitable tools.
  • Purchase seeds.
  • Rent a piece of land.
  • Provide water for their growing crop.
  • Provide care for the growing crop in terms of weeding and fertilisers.
  • Harvest their crop.
  • Transport their harvested crop to market.
