In 2019, the Diocese of Ely and Christian Aid are delighted to be working together on a joint Lent Appeal.
The appeal is in support of the project "Breaking the Barriers: Business Opportunities Through Sustainable Energy Projects for Women in Rural Malawi, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso and Honduras".
What could your support provide;
- Your £16 multiplied to £80 can give five women solar lamps for their homes, helping their children do their homework.
- Your £75 multiplied to £375 can train five groups of women in using solar power to grow their businesses.
- Your £450 multiplied to £2,250 can train 50 women in skills to help them power ahead with their own businesses.
(Thanks to funding from the European Union, every £1 you donate this Lent will be worth £5!)
