Isaiah 43:19

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

New International Version

Be alert, be present. I\'m about to do something brand-new.

It\'s bursting out! Don\'t you see it?

There it is! I\'m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands.

The Message


You could soon be changing the lives of people in Bangladesh




Let’s find Henry Duck and he can tell you more.



My name is Henry Duck and I am proud to be a Campbell duck.

I live in Bangladesh and I am part of a project changing the lives of farmers and their families.

I am going to tell you all about it and how you can help.


Henry how can ducks help the people in Bangladesh?

Come with me and I’ll show you. Let’s begin by finding Bangladesh on a map.


The farmer plants the seeds and

the seeds grow

The water floods the seedlings

and the plants die

It rains and rains


My owner Roban, has 23 more ducks just like me. Everyday he feeds us rice, then lets us out to swim and eat plants and snails. In the evening he calls us back and always counts if we are all there. If one of us is missing he will go out to look for them.

This reminds me of a Bible story I have heard in church.



This is Tumpa, Roban’s eldest daughter. In her free time she likes to play karem, which is a game a little like snooker but without the cues.

Karem can be played by two or four people. The objective of play is to use a striker disk with a flick of the finger to make contact with and move lighter object disks called Karem men, which can be pushed into one of four corner pockets. The most powerful karem piece is called the queen and is usually a red disk or seed the same size as the karem men. Pocketing this piece adds 3 points to the players total score, however if not pocketed correctly the piece gets placed back in its original position and no points are awarded.



What can I do to change the world?

Come with me and I’ll show you.


You could:

Make someone smile,

Put litter in the bin,

Switch things off.

They are all good ideas and don’t sound too difficult, I’ll give them a try.


Energy Saving Bulbs,

Walk instead of drive,


Speak up against injustice,

Mmm …We often jump in the car when we could walk instead.


Take shorter showers,

Only boil as much water as you need,

Compost the kitchen waste.

I must tell my family about these ideas.



Could pay for saline resistant seeds and fertiliser for a family to grow and sell, to buy food and other essentials.


Could buy school books for the child of a forum member, to enable them to complete their education.


Could pay for ducks for a family, so that they can sell the eggs to pay for food, school books for their children and other necessities.


Familia Moja

‘Familia Moja’ is Kiswahli for ‘One Family’. This is a project set up to teach better farming techniques to families in Tanzania as their conventional farming techniques are labour-intensive and becoming ineffective as rainfall declines and pressure on land increases. The project also includes mobile health clinics and fundraising for people who cannot afford immunisations or medical tests. There are currently 10 families living on and running the farm, not only growing food for themselves but also food for another 250 people.
