Project Description

Writing online news stories for Halcrow Foundation, a UK charity that funds community-driven projects in the UK, Africa and Asia. These are posted on the charity’s website and shared on social media to update the supporters and grantees. Halcrow Foundation funds a wide variety of grassroots projects which are designed to sustain and improve people’s lives. These news stories talk about a project by Lights For Learning charity that trains unemployed young people in rural Zambia to build and install solar-powered lighting in schools. Also a project run by Tiyeni which teaches sustainable farming methods to communities in Malawi. By making crops more resistant to unpredictable weather patterns caused by climate change, Tiyeni’s deep bed farming method increases the farmers’ crop yields and improves food security, helping to break the cycle of poverty within communities.
