A word from….The Artemis Charitable Foundation


Lindsay Whitelaw, Chairman, The Artemis Charitable Foundation

The Artemis Charitable Foundation has been supporting Shivia since 2010. Throughout this time we have been constantly impressed by the sustainable impact of Shivia’s work in some of the poorest communities in India, alleviating poverty by helping people gain the skills and materials and confidence to provide for themselves and their families. Some of their work is truly ground breaking, setting down a blue print that other charities will likely follow.  Although a relatively small charity, the standard of governance is of the highest order and the quality of reporting back to the donors exemplary. We have visited Shivia’s operations in India and found the quality of people and their commitment to be commendable. Our view is that Shivia has the organisational structure in place to be a significantly larger charity without compromising on quality or the impact of their work. As with all charities a key factor is the founder, and in Olly Donnelly, the founder and Chief Executive, there is unstinting commitment and effective professionalism and a driving force for maximum positive impact in the communities in which Shivia operates.

  • 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.
