We have added seven wonderful new gifts to the range, keep reading to find out more:
Perfect to work towards as a group, with your parish or school, this gift helps to shine a light in dark places, with solar powered street lights being added to refugee camps.
For kids both big and small, a bike for a water pump mechanic is a great way to celebrate someone's love of their bike. Without a bike, a mechanic can walk for hours just to reach a water pump or borehole to check if needs any maintenance. The longer it takes them to reach the water source, the longer people can go without clean, safe water.
Perfect for the craft-lover in your life. This gift provides a newly trained seamstress with everything they need to start their new business. Not only have they learned a new skill, but a source of income can transform the lives of those most in need.
Celebrate an older loved one with this heartwarming new gift. This provides older people who have experienced ongoing trauma with much needed emotional and psychological support.
This gift is truly embracing the reality that women living in poverty are less likely to access an education and therefore to learn a skill with which they can earn an income. Women are often simply unequal to men in their communities. This gift celebrates women coming together to run a business and earn an income.
For the beautician or happy hairdresser in your life, this gift buys a newly trained hairdresser everything they need to start their business. From combs and brushes, to a mirror and a doll head to practice on.
This incredible gift is another great one to aim for as a group. In some communities, when a husband dies their wife and children are left with no rights to the marital home and can be forced out onto the street. This gift pays for legal aid to help a widow and her family stay in their home, without the fear of eviction.
Hopefully one of these new gifts will spark your interest, if not, your old favourites are still available!
