We are delighted to have more than reached our Big GIve #ChristmasChallenge17 target, raising over £11,500, which we will use to launch our new micro credit project.

Thanks to the generous donations received, we will now be able to offer small loans to individuals to start their own businesses, helping them to work their own way out of poverty.

We will continue to look for more funding to expand this programme and any donations for this work would still be most welcome.
