Zimele's Big Give Christmas Challenge 2014

The countdown begins!

Cinderella, a Zulu farmer, drying her “magic” bean crop

Meet Cinderella, a Zulu farmer, drying her “magic” bean crop.

We’d like to help women like her maximise the potential of their homestead gardens and fields. A better yield means more food on the family table,  as well as extra to sell.

We’re funding a training programme for women to learn eco friendly techniques to boost their crops and conserve local resources.

Any donation you make to Zimele through The Big Give will be matched. That's right! Your money will be doubled!

The challenge opens for on-line donations at 10am on Thursday 4th December until that days matching money is exhausted. Last year, Thursday’s pot of money ran out in minutes! But do keep trying! There will be more money released at 10am on Friday and Saturday.

Visit http://new.thebiggive.org.uk/project/ZimeleFarmers to find out more about the project. You can also follow this link on the day to make your donation.

So go on, help Cinderella’s dreams come true!
