BIG: Three international development organisations carrying out research into HIV/AIDS awareness in disadvantaged countries have received over £28,000 from the Big Lottery Fund. The grants are part of a total of five projects that are benefiting from a £46,310 global cash package from BIG’s £72 million International Grants programme.
In addition, a grant of £8,150 to the Karen Hill Tribes Trust will help them evaluate how the organisation's activities, such as installing clean water supplies, improving school education and assisting with farming equipment & cattle, have impacted upon social and economic trends in villages in the region.
Finally, a grant of £9,975 will be used to look into beekeeping and trade in bee products as a means of bringing income benefits to the most disadvantaged subsistence farmers in Western Equatoria, Southern Sudan.
