The Cyrene Course has a Shop

July 19, 2010

We are deighted to announce that the Cyrene course now has a tailoring shop.  Graduates of the sewing and literacy course that we run will work in the shop giving them an opportunity to earn an income, build their confidence and learn about retail.

We pray that the shop will be a huge success.


Finally… 1132931

December 6, 2009

At long last we finally have our charity number. 

Yes, I know what you are thinking, isn’t WWR a charity already?  Well we are, but because we have been rather small until now, we have only been registered with HMRC as a charity for tax purposes.  Only charities of a certain size (i.e. level of income) can apply to become a fully fledged charity with the Charity Commission and this is what we are now.

Hooray!  The process has been quite long and many signatures and documents have been required but we are through it and can now write:

Registered Charity No. 1132931

on everything!


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…..!
