This January Medway Soroptimists attended MLT’s production of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency based on the book by Douglas Adams.
Ticket sales and a raffle resulted in a donation of £160 for the Meru Garden Project. Meru County has a largely rural population with HIV/AIDs prevalent in the region. Meru Women’s Garden Project will support some of the poorest women-led households in Kenya, and is entirely focussed on providing opportunities to women and girls who may never otherwise be given the chance to earn an income, and gives them status within their community.
The project fully embraces the three key areas at the heart of SIGBI’s Programme Focus Goals – Educate, Empower and Enable. Improved food production and education will support women and girls to transform their lives and those of others through a process of cascade learning and mentoring thereby reducing poverty, improving health and increasing employment.
The Meru Garden Project will run from 2016-2019. To date the Region have raised over £100,000. Click here to find out more
