SIGBI Best Practice Award

Federation (SIGBI) Programme Action Awards were introduced in 2003 to honour the excellent work done by Clubs throughout our Federation.

SI Sutton Coldfield for their EMBO project.

Our members attending the conference at Barbados were thrilled to be called upon to receive one of the awards.

This Project consists mainly of grannies caring for children orphaned by AIDS. It helps them be self-sufficient, growing vegetables, cooking together and making goods to sell. The Club raises money and members visit the Project and receive regular updates and photographs from their Friendship Link SI Durban.  The club has introduced the project to another Friendship Link Club SI Kyoto in Japan who are also supporting the project.
