I help women to set up their own businesses and provide solar lights to enable teachers and pupils to work at home after the sun sets.
I'm now half way through the labels for the new school bags I am making for the children who live at Casuarina House in Utange. I took a break for a few days to do some smaller scale embroidery, but will return to finish the rest soon. I've just ordered some more embroidery discs, so no doubt that will give me a new boost of enthusiasm!
