Solutions to Poverty: Manchester, Thank you!

We’d like to extend a belated but sincere thank you to everyone who joined us in Manchester for our recent event, discussing iDE’s solutions to poverty.

This was our first open evening in the Northern capital and we were thrilled with such a diverse turn out.

Attendance on the night included a flood of students from Manchester Uni who showed genuine enthusiasm for iDE’s poverty solutions projects in rural Africa and Asia.

Thanks too to our NW-based trustee, David Rigby who gave a captivating talk about the work iDE is carrying out and his personal experiences visiting our projects in Ethiopia and Cambodia.

Farm poverty Africa

Farm poverty Africa: iDE assists small-scale farmers to become profitable participants in local markets.

Reaching out to North West businesses, he will describe some typical projects, sponsorship opportunities and sponsor benefits, which can include visits to projects and naming rights.

David explains: “I think that iDE UK’s business-based approach should appeal to local professionals: individuals, practices and staff, who are looking for a charity to support”

In attendance will be the charity’s Chief Executive, Lewis Temple and Fundraising Manager, Elizabeth Gordon.
