Sunshine on a snowy day!

We’ll be launching lots of new gorgeous handmade goodies in our shop very soon but couldn’t resist putting these up today…

Two gorgeous new medium weight scarves – perfect for this never ending winter/never starting spring!

They’re double sided – bright, summery 100% cotton ‘hollandais’ fabrics on one side with a softer, more snuggly side made from 55% hemp/45% organic cotton jersey in charcoal grey.

The colours are uplifting and sunny but they’re keep you warm until the summer arrives

A snap at £25 and all the profit will help us to enrol more children like Tom, orphaned by HIV, enrol into primary school 🙂

Marvin’s latest community bullet (Bwaise life in pictures!)

This is the latest pictorial community bulletin from Marvin, 12 years, to keep you up to date on the events happening in his community in Bwaise over the holidays….

As he has reported previously, the area where they live is plagued with flooding several times year. This is partly caused by more frequent and heavier rains (climate change) but also the reclaiming of a nearby swamp by The National Water and Sewage Cooperation, the swamps used to act as catchment for water whenever it rains but now water just rises and washes through people’s houses. The government are finally working on the drainage channels around his home and he hope he will never have to experience the flooding again……

We love the diggers!
