The Tiger Widows Organisation works in the Sundarbans, India creating womens self-help-groups and providing livelihood training in sewing and tailoring, kitchen gardening and vegetable growing, hen, duck and goat rearing and composting.
To date with your donations and working with our field partner Digambarpur Angikar we have achieved the following:
We support 275 Active Women's Self-Help-Groups in the India Sundarbans.
These are comprised of 2715 women who participate in micro-credit schemes and have the option to receive free livelihood training and start-ups and Women's empowerment programs which we provide.
Currently we are fundraising for poultry training and start-up program for 200 women in poverty. The cost is €2,200. Please consider donating towards this important project. Participants will receive training and 20 chicks each. This is a lifeline for 200 families. They will have daily nourishment and enough eggs to sell at the market. Thank you.
We provide start-up sewing materials or animals etc. afterwards for the trainees.
During this difficult time of Covid-19 we are also contributing to relief efforts for impoverished families.
We assisted 275 families with Covid pandemic relief, food and hygiene packs in 2020.
This community in Sundarbans India needs assistance as food supplies are very scarce. Many people have returned home from other regions due to Covid-19.
We provided relief for the poorest families - packs of food (rice, lentils, vegetables, mustard oil, potatoes, onions, eggs) and soap/sanitiser for hygiene for mainly widows and orphans. This is a very remote/cut-off island region which suffers the full force of category 5 cyclones.
Please donate - help us to provide livelihood training and self help groups. These programs make a real difference to families.
