Know that every penny you give or raise is spent on the poorest people and on projects that are value for money.
Your donation: Listening to what you tell us
You spoke, we listened! You have told us that you want your sisters and brothers to support themselves. Being able to stand on your own two feet is the most important thing in this. Isn’t it wonderful when you get a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work?
Edelmira’s brilliant story is about long-term success. You have played a part in her confidence, her voice, her ability to feed her family.
