At the Millione Foundation we are raising funds to build primary schools in Sierra Leone. We give kids an education they would not otherwise receive. Since 2013, working in partnership with ActionAid we have built 5 schools educating 1500 children in some of the poorest communities in a very poor country. We need funds to build, equip and staff the 6th school, and to engender social and economic activity in the community. This includes micro-loans to help women start small businesses, campaigns around the importance of girls going to school and to stop violence against women and girls.
All my revenue from sales of my book YOUR WINE QUESTIONS ANSWERED will be donated to build the school. Revenue also comes from profits from sales of the Millione wine brand and donations.
