Shivia is a UK registered charity working in India. Our mission is to empower the poorest to create livelihoods, boost income and inspire permanent change.
We have chosen to work in rural West Bengal, one of India’s poorest states, and provide families there with the tools and training needed to start agricultural enterprises that will provide a regular increase in household income.

We aim to promote enterprise and not dependency, and empower the people in most need, particularly women, to work their own way out of poverty and provide a brighter future for their children. In 2017, Shivia was voted International Charity of the Year by the Charity Times.

“Shivia’s amazing work to empower the poorest communities in India to create livelihoods is inspiring, and we're delighted to be helping them achieve permanent change.”
