Christmas Shoe boxes – working with Teams4U – Giving Love in a Box
From our hands to theirs, our shoeboxes will be given to vulnerable children or families, and distributed through schools, nurseries, hospitals and orphanages in Eastern Europe
In 2016 thanks to all our members, we were thrilled to send 36 shoe boxes to Teams4U. This year for Christmas 2017 we have already started work by wrapping shoe boxes ready to fill with goods for children and homes in Rumania.
Teams4U – Develop with Dignity Campaign.
We have been collecting knickers and bras for young girls in Uganda, and raising funds for the project – see below
“There are 10,500 schoolgirls aged 12-16 in the Kumi District, Masaka, Uganda. Over 6,300 will drop out of education before they graduate. One of the biggest reasons for this is the estimated 1 in 4 weeks each of them lose because of menstruation. The rural shops don’t sell sanitary towels and even if they did 1 pack costs more than 1 person’s daily wage (employment rates as low as 1 in 7 in Kumi) and are absolutely no use if the child doesn’t own underwear.”
