May 18, 2009

WWR invites you to a Nepali evening to be held at the

 

Sultan Balti Palace

in Wokingham

 

on

Saturday June 27th

at 8pm

 

This will be the first event of its kind that WWR has hosted and will be a chance for us to thank all our supporters who have given so generously over the past four years.  We will be also be celebrating our new ‘official charity status’! 

Tickets cost £22.50 per person and include a three course buffet, a glass of wine and entertainment as well as helping raise valuable funds for WWR.

 To purchase tickets, please send a cheque made payable to ‘Women Without Roofs’ to WWR, 10 Comet Avenue, Upavon, Pewsey, SN9 6BT by June 16th

 We look forward to seeing you

There is ample free parking near the Sultan Balti Palace in any of the car parks in Wokingham town centre – if you require directions please let us know and we will send them to you together with your tickets.

 The train station is only 5-10 minutes walk away and is on the Reading to Waterloo – London line.  If you require overnight accommodation then we would be happy to recommend a hotel, please let us know.

 The evening is open to absolutely anyone so please feel free to bring friends along.  Tables are for 6 people so if you can fill a table that would be great.

 The dress code is casual, however if you have any Nepali clothes we’d love for you to wear them  – if you’d like to try wearing a sari (I’m afraid women only!) then please let us know and we will see what we can do.

 All of the money raised on the night will go to Nepal to support needy women and their families. 

 Thanks for your support


Renee goes to Nepal

Renee

Tomorrow Renee, one of our trustees, flies to Kathmandu, Nepal and will be there for just over a month seeing people and managing the work of Women Without Roofs on the ground. 

Circumstances permitting, she hopes to visit each of the ladies we support and check that they own each of the key items that they need to achieve a basic but satisfactory standard of living – see the previous article on this home page for the list.  She will be helping them choose and buy the items that they are missing.

Renee also plans to spend time at the Cyrene project finding out how the women that have completed the sewing course are getting on with using their newly learnt skills.  We also have some ideas of items they could make for us to sell here in the UK that she will share with them.

We wish her a safe and rewarding trip, both for her and the ladies she sees.  We will, when possible, post updates on this website about what she gets up to!


Trustees Meeting

The trustees of WWR are meeting this week in Devon, England to discuss tons of issues related to the running of the charity and how to take it forward.  If there is anything you would like them to discuss or if you have any comment about WWR, please let us know either by leaving a comment here or e-mailing anna@wwr-nepal.org.


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!


Bible Society features WWR

December 9, 2008

The Bible Society is featuring Women Without Roofs in its Nepal Christmas resource pack.

This year will be the first time that Nepalis will be legally allowed to celebrate Christmas.  In the last twelve months the nation has become a federal democratic republic and now offers equal recognition to all the country’s religions.

To mark this incredible occasion the Bible Society is encouraging people in England to help celebrate with the Nepalis and has produced a ‘starter kit’ to help do this.  You can order your copy at www.biblesociety.org.uk/nepal.

Information about ordering pashminas from WWR and supporting our work is included in the pack.
