A word from…..Martin Stamp, Ionic Information Ltd

We know we can’t change the world overnight but it is important to be heading in the right direction.  Rural poverty in India is not the fault of the people living there – they have few or no avenues for improvement.  Shivia gives them a chance to take more control of their lives: to improve their finances, to improve their nutrition, to improve the prospects for their children and to improve their own status and confidence.  And very often it works; allowing a step change in the prospects for a whole family. I spent 3 years living in India much of it in rural areas.  In my experience the average villager is proud, independent and generous; they work almost non-stop. They need to be helped in a way that works for them and I believe that Shivia does this extremely effectively. Ionic Information is proud to be supporting Shivia’s Poultry Development Services programme and I am very happy that for each new data terminal we install five families in West Bengal will get this opportunity.

  • 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.
