49 Actions!

January 29, 2009

Last week the trustees of WWR met together in the stunning Devon town of Lynton for 24 hours.  As a result of the meeting they have a combined total of 49 actions to achieve and will be very busy for the next while!

Some of the main points you might be interested in are:

Marilyn will be taking over organising pashmina orders – her e-mail address is pashmina@wwr-nepal.org.

Renee will (hopefully) be visiting Nepal during February and March and will be assessing each of the women we support and ensuring they have a basic standard of living.  She will be checking to see that they at least own the following items:

Bed

Salt & Rice

Jacket

Blanket

Large Water Container

Hat

Pillow

Stool

Gloves

Metal Crockery inc Beaker

Cupboard/Food Store

School Uniform for children

Saucepan/Stir fry pot

Shoes

Shawl

Pressure Cooker

Socks

Stove & Gas

Serving Spoon

Thermals

 

If you sponsor one of the women and would like to know what their needs are and what we will be buying for them, then please let us know.

Our income has crossed the £5,000/annum threshold and consequently we will be fully registering with the Charity Commission (at the moment we are registered with HMRC only for tax purposes).

Once Renee returns from Nepal we will be putting together a DVD to demonstrate the work we do and the plight of the women we support – we will let you know when it is completed so you can see it.

If you’d like to know what the other 45 action points are then get in contact and we’d be happy to send you a copy of the minutes…..!

Warm for Christmas

December 9, 2008

Women Without Roofs is pleased to announce that it will be giving a Christmas present to each of the women we support in Nepal.  The women will receive a new warm blanket to help them through the cold days and nights in Kathmandu, where homes have no heating.

This has been made possible by a generous donation from Dayspring church, Wiltshire (www.dayspring.org.uk).

Photos of the women with their blankets will follow soon!
