Helping to Educate

We were delighted for the opportunity to support a good friend to Maher Ross,  Jo Hughes-Chamberlain, who has recently started her own initiative to raise £1000 for a uniquely charitable cause.

Jo is raising money for sewing machines and basic training for families in Lusaka, Zambia.  She reports that girls are not able to continue their education at school past a certain age, for more than 75% of the time,  because of the significant local stigmatism associated with carrying and using feminine hygeine products.  Jo is providing the sewing machines so they can make a range of simple 'schoolbags' from simple patterns which should enable a much larger number of girls to continue a full education past 13 years old.

Jo would be delighted if you could help her.  Her "Just Giving" page can be found at :
