Traidcraft - May 2017

Traidcraft’s aim is to focus on helping people work their own way out of poverty. Their vision is for ‘ a world freed from the scandal of poverty where trade is fair and people and communities can flourish”.

Mwathi lives with her family in Kenya. Before Traidcraft stepped in , she was able to sell only one bag of maize from each harvest for 1,250ksh.Her children were going to school but she was behind with their school fees and , in the end, the children had to miss several terms of schooling. They also regularly didn’t have enough food to eat.

Since being trained by Traidcraft experts on farming techniques, Mwathi has a better harvest and she now grows cow peas, beans, and sorghum as well as maize and she sells these for 6,100 ksh. Her children are much healthier and two of her sons have now applied to College.

If you want to know more about the stories of the people who are helped through Traidcraft, please go to their website or ask one of the Traidcraft team.
All this could not happen without your support !!

Thank you for supporting the Traidcraft stalls over Easter and the regular monthly stall which is held on the 4th Sunday of each month in the porch room after the 10am service.

We are also hoping to sell cards EVERY week after the morning service ....a great idea if you are suddenly in need of a birthday or occasional card or just a blank notecard.

Look out for details of our summer tea party and please do continue to support us.

Thank you. Jackie Natt
