Thank you!

A huge thank you to all our Friends and Supporters who have helped to make this such a good year for Chimwemwe.

The skills centre is progressing (red-tape in Malawi is, as ever, slowing progress) and the kids are enjoying a Christmas dinner today.

All of the kids are doing well, but I'm especially delighted to tell you that Chifundo has come 1st in his class in recent exams and that Nicholas has an apprenticeship in tailoring.

Thank you again for all your support. Without it, these kids would still be on the streets and out of education and facing a bleak life of poverty. With your help, they have hopes and aspirations for a brighter future.

Thank you!!

Charity auction for Chimwemwe

The fabulous people over at Philofaxy are auctioning a gold Filofax, incredibly kindly donated by the excellent folks over at Filofax, in aid of Chimwemwe Children's Centre. You can see the details here.

Chimwemwe Children's Centre are in the process of building and equipping a Skills Centre for the children to be able to do after-school events at, have space to do homework in, to read in, have a space to learn life skills in and get vocational training at, so that they are equipped to support themselves in the long run.

All money raised by the auction will go towards the Skills Centre and will help some of the poorest people in the world to break free from the cycle of poverty.

Thank you so much to Filofax and to Philofaxy for their incredible generosity.
