IMET2000 Applauds Charity SHIVIA for Small Charity Award

IMET200 are delighted to tell you that our close friends the wonderful UK-registered charity SHIVIA working in West Bengal  was awarded the ‘Small Charity, Big Achiever’ at the Third Sector Awards in London on Friday, September  30.

 Watch the winning moment here!

They were shortlisted for their Agri-management Services Programme : Creating Sustainable Livelihoods for Marginalised Farmers in India.

 It was a wonderful moment when the announcement was made, particularly as there were six other amazing charities in the shortlist for this award.

The Founder and CEO of SHIVIA, Olly Donnelly, together with their newest Trustee, Adi Gokal, were at the ceremony to collect the award and were completely taken aback when Shivia was announced as the winner.  Their first thought was for the teams in India who have worked so hard to deliver the programme on the ground in West Bengal and Odisha.  Since 2014, they have trained over 8,200 very poor farmers in responsible and sustainable farming, helping them to make farming profitable and earn a decent income with dignity.

IMET2000 is so proud of this prestigious award for such a splendid small charity and can only congratulate Olly and her great team. We are hoping to support them with extra funding over the next twelve months as their work is so important to food security in low-resource societies worldwide.
