Our beautiful, sacred Mother Earth is under attack. Her forests are being cleared. Her minerals are being plundered. Her rivers and seas are being poisoned. Her sky is being choked and her climate changing. Her creatures are being driven to extinction.
Meanwhile millions of people live in extreme poverty. Some of them are poor as a result of the exploitation and industrialisation of the environment. Some of them have no choice but to deplete their local environment because of their poverty.
PaganAid wants to break this cycle of destitution and destruction by helping people to meet their basic needs through living in harmony with nature. We will do this by funding small-scale projects that help poor and marginalised communities to protect and develop their own livelihoods and the environment about them – projects that put equal value on ending poverty and protecting Mother Earth.
We need your help.
Firstly, please give whatever you can afford towards our current projects. Even the smallest donation will be used to make a difference (but obviously, the more you give, the more we can do).
Secondly, please become a member. Being a member means you get a say in which projects we raise money for and helps us ensure that donations are not spent on running the charity.
Examples of the types of project that we have funded are:
- Supporting permaculture in the Himalayas.
- Helping victims of a Puerto Rican hurricane.
- Tree Aid, support their Women’s Forest Livelihoods project in the Passoré province of central Burkina Faso.
The beneficiaries of projects we fund can be of any faith or none, so long as they want to live in harmony with nature.
