Ditching takeaways for home-cooked meals and sponsoring a sister
Did you know that the average person in the UK spends a whopping £451 each year on takeaways?
Though a convenient option, it's not always the healthiest or most sustainable. This is why we called on our supporters to ditch the styrofoam containers and for £22 a month (less than your average takeaway for 2), changing the life of a woman survivor of war.
Virtual Cooking Class with Mick Elysée
To celebrate World Food Day and our Serving Up Sisterhood campaign we joined renowned Congolese-French Chef Mick Élysée in his kitchen for a virtual cooking class. Visit the event page for the delicious recipes Mick shared at the event.
Recipes to help you ditch the takeaways
Fonio is an African heritage grain and is considered the continent’s oldest cultivated cereal. It is a great alternative to quinoa or brown rice. Its nutty flavour will add a little je-ne-sais-quoi to your dish. This is a recipe for fonio served with vegetables.

How your support will make a difference
become a part of ripple effect of change
Thanks to your generous commitment, your sponsored sister will find the support, solidarity and practical tools to help her reclaim her power. She will learn to save money, build a business, understand her rights and improve her health. She will pass on this knowledge to her family and community – sharing her power to create a world that is more equal, peaceful, and prosperous for everyone.
Stronger Women, Stronger Nations programme
Our year-long Stronger Women, Stronger Nations programme is divided into four modules covering earning and saving money, learning about their rights, becoming decision-makers at home and in their communities and learning about health and wellbeing.
In the health and wellbeing module, women learn about the importance of food hygiene and nutrition – so they can healthily feed their families. Paired with business training and a vocational skill, women can use this valuable knowledge to start their own business – selling honey, making yoghurt, baking bread and farming their own land.
