And while some of us may even stick to our resolutions, many more of us will set ourselves challenges that we cannot keep.
So why not this year make a resolution that’s both easy to keep and makes a life-changing difference to those less fortunate then ourselves?
In Africa millions of families will go to bed hungry each and every night. Farm Africa is a different kind of charity that is working to end this, not through more food aid and hand-outs but instead by giving African farmers the skills and know-how they need so they can grow enough food for their families.
Farm Africa, has a range of activities so you can get involved with that will make that big difference.
