17th May 2021: the second wave of Covid-19 is devastating India. The virus is spreading very quickly through the rural areas where access to medical care is very difficult. The villages in West Bengal where we are working are back in lockdown for two weeks. People are only allowed to go out of their houses between 7am-10am to get food.

We need your support more than ever so that when this lockdown ends we can continue to provide our vital services to enable people to get their small enterprises back up and running again.

You can help us do this by donating one or more of our Poultry Toolkits.

It costs just £15 to provide the tools and training for a woman to start earning money by raising chickens and selling the products.

Thank you.

I wholeheartedly support the approach that people should be given the tools to help themselves out of poverty. Through years of practical experience Shivia has developed a really robust livelihood development programme which is making a significant difference to the quality of life of families in West Bengal. Furthermore, they continue to move towards the ultimate goal of any development organisation which is to hand over the management to local people with the passion and drive to take it onwards and upwards.

  • Agri-management Services has the capacity to deliver lasting change for our farmers. I have always felt that the farmers feed our nation while they can hardly afford to feed themselves. What an irony. So if my team and I are able to help farmers earn a sustainable income through agriculture, there’s nothing better than this.
