Thank you…thank you!


That’s a double thank you from everyone at Shivia to all our supporters who helped us to double our fundraising during The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2019.

We started the campaign with an ambitious fundraising target of £12,500 for the week-long campaign in December – with the potential to double that with matching funds already pledged by other donors…but we could only access those pledged funds if donations were received during the Christmas Challenge week.

We are delighted to say that not only did we reach our £12,500 but we exceeded it!

The grand total raised during the campaign (with that all important matched funding and Gift Aid) was a staggering £28,198!

This money means Shivia can expand in 2020 and take our Poultry Development Services programme to even more villages in West Bengal. We will be able to give thousands more families the boost they need to lift themselves from poverty by giving them the tools and training to start earning money from raising chickens.

  • 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.
