Invest in small business start-ups in Africa
Through Good Gifts, tens of thousands of war widows in Rwanda have received chickens, goats, solar lights and health care. We are particularly proud of the programme to help women to set up small businesses, so they can support themselves. Please invest in African women so they can be self-sufficient and in charge of their lives.
For example, Charlotte is 50 years old. Her husband was killed in the Genocide. She had a small piece of land on which she grew bananas. "Before I received support the harvest was very poor because I grew local bananas. After receiving the new plants from Good Gifts I started to invest more time, using manure... now every month generates more than £70 from selling bananas."
