Starfish Malawi Christmas Appeal
On the first day of December, we are excited to launch our annual Christmas Appeal!
Christmas is a time for family, friends and being thankful for all that God has blessed us with. It is also a time for giving and for taking time to consider those less fortunate than ourselves.
In Malawi, many girls are confined to their homes during menstruation and are unable to participate in everyday activities. Therefore, female students miss up to one quarter of school time, often including vital end of year exams, because of their menstrual cycle.
Last Christmas, you helped us raise over £500 to provide 100 re-usable sanitary kits to girls in Malawi, through our GATEWAY programme - the joy and freedom this gave these girls was wonderful to witness, thank you! This year, we would love to provide 500 more kits to girls in need in the communities we support and with your help, we can make this dream a reality!
We have set ourselves a target of raising £1,000 by the 7th January. If we meet our £1,000 target, your donations will be DOUBLED, matched pound for pound by some of Starfish Malawi's top supporters!
Just £4 provides a girl with a re-usable sanitary kit and gives her the gift of education.
Give the gift of education this Christmas
By teaching local communities how to produce the packs, our GATEWAY project strives to empower local women to take their future, and the futures of their daughters, into their own hands.
Just £4 buys a girl a re-usable sanitary towel and gives her the gift of education this Christmas.
Don't miss out on the opportuntity to double your donation this Christmas, please consider supporting our Christmas Appeal.
Thank you for all of your support throughout the year, we could not continue our work without the generous support of our Starfishers. May we wish you all a very happy Christmas.
