The need is greater than ever
COVID-19 has devastated all aspects of life across South Asia, particularly for women and girls; children are at greater risk of exploitation, the mental health crisis has deepened, education is on hold and livelihoods have been wiped out overnight.
His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales - a special message
But there is hope
Our vital work enables people in the poorest parts of South Asia to be free from poverty.
This includes our innovative Livelihoods programme that equips women with the new skills, knowledge and confidence needed to earn a decent living in a post-COVID South Asia.
As a result, more women will escape the cycle of poverty, enabling them to feed and support their families and keep them safe from exploitation.
