Who are we raising money for?
Proceeds will go to a project with Arts Against Knives. Through their creative workshops and projects, they have been successful in supporting young individuals with a past in crime who need experience and opportunity to access education employment and training https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYuRZyI0uZ8
We're also supporting Childhope via TRAID, to provide birth certificates for children of garment workers. In Bangladesh, many garment workers are extremely poor women who are single mothers. They have usually migrated from rural areas looking for work and opportunities for themselves and their children. With high demand for cheap labour in the garment industry, many of these women work sewing clothes in factories. Birth certificates are crucial so their children can get access to education and medical care http://www.traid.org.uk/were-supporting-the-children-of-garment-workers/
