THE STORY:

The non-profit organization Give A Heart To Africa (GHTA) empowers women with the skills to improve their situations and pull themselves out of poverty.

http://www.giveahearttoafrica.org/

They have developed an adult education centre that helps disadvantaged women gain better employment or start their own small businesses. Here women learn English, business, and computer skills free of charge. It opens their minds, shows them new opportunities in life, and gives them a sense of purpose and satisfaction. Upon completing their six month course, GHTA assist 3 to 5 of our graduates financially and professionally, in starting their own businesses. They run a women’s co-operative in the retail area of Moshi, Tanzania where women get their businesses started.

This fund-raising project aims to raise the necessary funds for a volunteer trip that I would like to make in the summer months. My aim is to raise the volunteer fee, 100% of it which goes towards the adult education centre and its students.

This project is a genuine attempt by me to involve my community and make a change in the lives of these amazing women, in order to help them help themselves.
