Tearfund Mean Bean Challenge 2018

run by

The Mean Bean Challenge - 5 days eating nothing but plain rice and beans -will give you an opportunity to experience hunger, and raise money to end poverty and hunger for people like Matunda.

Charity Registration No. 265464


Can you imagine getting paid in leaves?

It seems almost too absurd to be true, but that’s the awful reality for people like Matunda. She desperately wants to provide for her family, but all she gets for a hard day’s labour is a tiny handful of yams and cassava leaves. They only eat one small meal a day.

Something has to be done. I’m fundraising to empower people like Matunda so that they can lift themselves out of poverty.

£240 will give four women like Matunda the skills they need to provide for their families.

Please join me as I take a stand against poverty.
