Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The training we provide positively impacts the livelihoods of people living in some of the most impoverished and environmentally challenged regions of the globe.
Rothamsted International (RI) was established in 1993 by the Lawes Agricultural Trust and, over the past 25 years, has supported 204 researchers, from 35 different countries, through the Rothamsted International Fellowship Scheme.
Our primary activity has been to provide support to researchers from low- and middle-income countries to study and train in the UK (for up to a year) on research projects that seek to develop solutions to the many challenges facing food production and sustainability in their home countries.
Your donations are essential to support these vital activities. £25,000 provides a RI fellow with a return flight, a living allowance for a year, a small research budget and specialist training at our state-of-the-art research facilities.
The RI fellowship scheme lays the foundation for long-term international collaboration with developing countries and directly contributes to the career development of our fellows. The knowledge gained through the fellowships is directly applied on the fellow’s return home and has a positive impact on the Food Security of multiple regions.
Your kind donations will enable us to continue to provide these opportunities and deliver research training for positive global impact.
