Buy a Gift of Hope

From goats to bees and bikes to trees, there is something for everybody. It’s a hassle-free way to buy your Christmas presents and you know that you will be helping to change a life in Africa this Christmas.      

You’ll be helping enterprising women like Aless and Christine.  Aless has taken part in a poultry project in Mpango village in Malawi.  She now has more than 100 chickens and last month, earned £125 from the sale of chickens and eggs in her local market. 

Christine in the Nyimba district of Zambia, has been helped by Self Help Africa to improve her production of bananas.  This autumn, she will start supplying fruit to a new processing plant in Nyimba town. Together with 50 other local traders, she will receive shares in the plant which will dry and package the bananas for sale to international markets.  

To buy your Gifts of Hope call into one of the following shops in Shrewsbury – The Dotty Dog Gallery, Birds Nest, Enjoy!, Oberon, Rustic and White

Or call the Shrewsbury office on 01743 277170 or visit our online shop

We can even save you a bit of time by sending your gift straight to the person who'll be receiving it.
