Raise funds, have fun, meet new people, do something wonderful today

Much of our income comes from donations through fund-raisers like you! Every donation – no matter how big or small – makes a difference especially as we have lower overheads working from home and being volunteers with no hugh saleries to pay out.. Here are just a few examples of what your fundraising efforts could buy:

Or it will buy two sewing machines for women with HIV to be able to make clothes to sell and make a living.
