Last Christmas I gave you cement…

Members of the board of Women Lawyers Association, together with the builder and Pauline Webber at the groundbreaking ceremony

Last year we were bowled over by your generous support of our Christmas campaign to raise funds to enable the Women Lawyers Association of Malawi to build a drop-in law center and refuge to support women and children fleeing domestic violence. There have of course been a few delays due to Covid, but we are delighted to say that work has begun. Pauline was delighted to join members of the board of the Women Lawyers Association, as well as Malawian members of NWT’s board of advisers, at a groundbreaking ceremony last week.

Life changing Christmas present

For most girls and young women in Malawi managing their periods is difficult as very few have any sanitary products or pants. Most simply don’t go to school during their period – which means that they miss up to a quarter of their education after they hit adolescence. 
 
This Christmas we are giving you the opportunity to change that for the girls and young women whose education NWT support. Your gift of £12 will enable us to provide each female school student 5 reusable sanitary pads, 4 bars of soap, a tub to wash them in, a sealable bag to store them in, and 2 pairs of underwear.

You can donate via https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/schoolgirl or directly into our bank account with the reference ‘Christmas’.

Download your choice of Life changing present gift certificate or Bloody good present gift certificate to put under the tree/in the card.

If we receive enough donations to help more young women than those whose education we support, we will offer them to other young women who attend school through our existing projects and relationships.
