"I am delighted to endorse SEED's Small Change Challenge for Lent. Little simplifications to our lifestyles make generosity possible even in a harsh economic climate. For rural communities in Zimbabwe, they translate into much more than we are giving up. I encourage you to support this campaign." (The Bishop of Ely, the Right Rev Stephen Conway)
Then, donate the money that you save to The SEED Project to help empower disadvantaged communities in Zimbabwe who have no luxuries to give up. Your donation could enable a rural family to plant trees that provide them with a sustainable source of cooking fuel, could pay for intensive training for a new micro-savings scheme group, or could sponsor a parent to learn new skills so they can support their own family.
To find out more about SEED's Small Change Challenge, read on about the Challenges and Causes ... And please invite your friends, colleagues and family to join in. Together, we can make a real difference in Zimbabwe.
