Monday’s wonderful news for the kanga project

Tetra Laval International SA have chosen the kanga project to be their beneficiary charity this Christmas. Expensive Christmas cards have been replaced by a donation to us and an electronic card bearing a message of support for our sponsorship programme. We can’t thank them enough. So thank you, thank you, thank you. We are really chuffed to get this support (can you tell?) and are keeping our fingers crossed that some of the many people who will get to know about us will perhaps become interested in helping a girl get the education she needs to get herself and her community out of … [Read more...]

But this one is using one of the latest “user friendly” wonderful wordpress theme, adapted for us by a very “user friendly” too designer from the US. We hope you enjoy browsing. If you only have time to scan through for now, look at all the main header pages, they have extracts from their sub-pages. There will … [Read more...]

Climbing Kilimanjaro for the kanga project

Ismat's 1st part account at climbing Kilimanjaro  with Razan last July. What a fantastic achievement. By all accounts it was very tough. Read the full blog as written in  The National Newspaper where Ismat is relating her recent world travels.
