Launching Tuesday 30th November 2021: The Big Give will match all donations for Women Changemakers in Sierra Leone

We are excited to share that in 2022 we will be launching a brand new project working with Women Changemakers in Sierra Leone. We'll work with rural women living on less than £1.40 a day to earn a living with backyard vegetable farming and soap making. Along the way they'll also learn business skills, literacy and numeracy, and gain an understanding of their rights, paving the way to a better life for their whole community.
