Silly Walk Sydney 2020 - For Palmera

Wanna join us Silly Walkers in making a difference?

Our Silly Walkers team is raising money to support the great work that Palmera does in Sri Lanka. Palmera works with small scale farmers and rural entrepreneurs to access profitable markets and create sustainable incomes so that no one is left out. Palmera believes the best way out of poverty is economic self sufficiency which delivers choice, freedom and dignity.

We are specifically supporting an upcoming project called Learning the GroundNuts and Bolts  : This project brings together 300 villagers and their families, and trains them in producing groundnuts. By providing training, developing a collective and introducing new technology to these producers, they will be able to negotiate with buyers and start to make a steady income. This project costs as little as $273 per producer over the 5 years we will be working on this programme.

We hope that the small efforts we Silly Walkers take will go a long way towards helping those desperately in need of support & assistance, particularly in these difficult times!
