Annual Review

Reaching more people than ever

In 2015, thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we not only reached more people than ever before - a huge 1.8 million - but we also delivered better value for money, with 88p in every £1 being spent on charitable activities.

And most importantly, we've been able to make real changes to the lives of farming families - from fish farmers in Kenya to coffee growers in the mountains of Ethiopia.

Highlights from our Annual Review

Protecting forests
We've reduced deforestation in Bale, Ethiopia by around 81% in three years, avoiding around 5.7 million tonnes of CO2 emissions - the same carbon footprint as flying everyone in Scotland to New York and back!

 

Developing businesses
We're working to create a strong aquaculture sector in Kenya. By filling the gaps in local markets and building up local aqua shops, we've helped fish farmers to increase their incomes by over 50%.

 

Increasing yields
We’ve helped sesame farmers in Babati, Tanzania increase their yields fourfold. And with more sesame grown and less wasted, they have more to sell at market.
