Happy International Women’s Day, to celebrate I’m sharing a digital postcard as part of the #lastingchange campaign that’s being run by the marvelous Team Honk and Sport Relief
Team Honk is about bloggers raising money and awareness for Comic Relief. To celebrate International Women’s Day #iwd2014, Tanya, Annie and Penny are in Tanzania finding out how donations to Sport Relief last year have created female entrepreneurs and #lastingchange for women, their families and communities and beyond – rippling out #lastingchange in Africa.
Penny writes: Eliafura makes the most beautiful batiks and tie dyed material. With the support of the Gatsby Trust Eliafura has registered her business and learned important health and safety rules around the chemicals she uses. Eliafura now also trains other women in the village who bring material to her and she shows them how to create these beautiful patterns. They sell easily to not only local schools where teachers like to buy them but also overseas. We bought her entire stock because we loved them all so much and are now working out how to sell them on so we can complete the circle of donation, funding, training, selling, donating.
I’m having a total IT meltdown today with everything failing on me so I can’t do the links on this I’d like too, but do go and look at Sport Relief, Team Honk and all the other bloggers taking part in #lastingchange, and if you can help please do so x
