I gave a fund raising talk to a London girls' school at the end of May (and kitted them all out with the lovely finger-less gloves made by my Malawi knitting ladies); ran a product stall in London at the end of June; and arranged to sell some of the Malawi products at the Worthing Art Trail at the beginning of July. I buy the products to support the local knitting and tailoring collectives when I'm in Malawi, and indirectly make profits for the schools programme too, so these selling opportunities are really useful. And of course the money earned by the knitters and tailors helps them feed their families and support their children's education. I call that win-win!
