EVENT DATE: Nov 25, 2011
SpanAfrica takes the 'Hands-Up' approach to development. Empowerment, autonomy creating, and skill building are the core of our work with grassroots organization partners doing development work in Africa.
The Nina Initiative is a great example of our partners. This local woman's organization in Kenya connect together on joint agricultural projects, rabbit breeding, and food assistance for youth in their area. To help fund their work, they take recycled plastic and with a bit of hand-crafted personalized flare, create fantastic handbags. Wherever these bags are seen, they are the talk of the town!
SpanAfrica has connected with the Nina Initiative to provide training in bookkeeping, strategic planning, and health & women's rights education. We have coordinated international volunteers that have come to work with their rabbit program and even assisted in building a greenhouse. And we want to continue providing support like this. Hands-Up!
Nina is only one of SpanAfrica's 25 selected Grassroots Partners. SpanAfrica is working to provide Hands-Up services to other organizations in Uganda, Zambia, Ghana, and Kenya. And we want you to be a part of this. . .
As part of 'Hands-Up for Handbags' we are offering a free handbag delivered to your doorstep, for donations above $100 to SpanAfrica.*
From donations, Nina is empowered to continue doing their great work within their community. And SpanAfrica is able to launch a campaign dedicated to better supporting all of our partners. We are reaching for $9,000 to cover an initiative to directly connect with all of our Kenyan and Ugandan partners with a new skills & grant program.
Help make it happen! Hands-up for handbags!
