To celebrate its 50th anniversary, this year the World Mission Council Stamp Appeal is supporting Chigodi Women Centre in Blantyre, Malawi, which is also celebrating its 50th anniversary.
The Chigodi Women Centre delivers a broad range of skills training to address the challenges faced by women in Malawi.
Through providing training in tailoring, fashion design and chicken farming, the Centre improves the women’s skills in marketing and entrepreneurship. The aim is that the women’s socio-economic status is improved and their chances of future employment increase. By selling the produce made at the Centre the plan is that when the funding finishes the project will be self-sustainable – able to continue to improve the lives of women in Malawi.
Help us to support Chigodi Women Centre by collecting your used stamps which are sold to make money for much needed resources.
Here in Troon Old, just drop as many stamps as you can remember to save into the collecting box in the Hall Corridor (or Church Office).
Please leave a 1cm margin round each stamp so the stamp itself isn’t damaged when tearing it off the envelope.
