Inverclyde's International Women's Day Challenge
To raise funds to enable Greenock-based charity, Aid for Education, to help women in east Rwanda who have no income earn some money to support their families and reduce poverty in the community.
Every £100 raised will help train, support and fund one woman to set up her own business, gain some financial independence which will help her send her children to school, and so, have a positive impact on the next generation too.
Any support you can give us will be greatly appreciated.
All donations are given directly to Aid for Education SCIO

Milestone 5 / 12
The goat project is one of the first income-generating projects Aid for Education has set up and since it was founded, many families have benefitted.
For £20, donors can buy a goat for a family.
These animals require less space than larger animals and can be a vital source of income for a family in Rwanda.
The goat produces manure for the family’s crops, they sell the offspring at the market for a profit or breed the animals.
The female kid is given to another family, so the benefit spreads.
You can donate here. Thank you for your support.
