In celebration of Savitri’s 20th year in philanthropy, we decided to do something a little different for our latest Annual Report. To signify this milestone, we are taking you on a journey from the origins of Savitri’s work in Community Health, right up to where we are heading with our increasing focus on Environmental Health.
The production and preservation of organic, local and agroecological seed is needed now more than ever. Not only to restore our depleted soils and preserve traditional & resilient seed varieties, but also to ensure that we as consumers have access to healthy nutritious food.
This #WorldWildlifeDay we announced our new partnership with Beaver Trust, an exciting addition to Savitri’s growing work on ecosystem restoration. Beavers play a crucial role in the functioning of our ecosystems, serving as a nature-based solution to land, river and wildlife restoration. Although native to Britain, these ecosystem engineers were hunted to extinction 400 years ago. More recently, they have been reintroduced across the UK in an effort to reverse environmental degradation and decreasing wildlife numbers.
