ACWW – GUATEMALA PROJECT, ‘Fertilise your Future’.  Target £2,900

Thank you for supporting ACWW in the past year. With your help we completed our fund raising for the Pig Project in Malawi and sent over £2,500 to the Coins for Friendship fund which supports Projects around the world.

  • We now need to raise £2,900 for the Guatemala Project which we call ‘Fertilise your Future’ as it will provide training for young women in skills that will enable them to improve their lives in the future. At the moment, they live with their families on the edge of a large rubbish tip on the edge of Guatemala City, hunting for anything that they can sell for recycling. So far, our fund has nearly reached £1000 and we need your help to make it grow.  Here’s an idea for collecting coins for this Project – as it has a rubbish theme this time, buy a small desktop bin and have it on display at your meetings for members’ loose change.

To help it along, join us for a Walk and Lunch at County House on Thursday 8 March. Details are with your secretary now. All your donations should be sent to County House and will be acknowledged. Cheques should be made payable to ACWW and be accompanied by a note saying they are for the Guatemala Project.

  • Thank you all for your support.  
  • I hope you have a lovely Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.   Helen Crowder, ACWW Rep.

  • CHRISTMAS APPEAL ON BEHALF OF THE SAMARITAN’S PURSE

Thank you very much for your kind donations of knitted hats, gloves and scarves. The lorries are now on their way filled with boxes of goodies for the children in time for Christmas.
