In a couple of weeks I’ll be taking part in the Darlington to Durham leg of the Team Honk Blogger’s relay and I’ll be sharing more information about what we’ll be doing in the next week or so but for now, I wanted to let you know about some inspirational ladies, Tanya, Annie and Penny who are working with Team Honk right now in Tanzania.
If you don’t already know about Team Honk, it’s all about bloggers who are raising money and awareness for Comic Relief.
To celebrate International Women’s Day #iwd2014, Tanya, Annie and Penny are finding out how our donations to Sport Relief last year have created female entrepreneurs and made a #lastingchange for women, their families and communities and beyond – rippling out #lastingchange in Africa.
This is a Bertha. She is a food producer in Dar es Salaam who has received support from the Gatsby Trust. Bertha makes three different types of wine, garlic paste and a flour used to make porridge. In addition to making products she is also now training other women to do the same. Bertha works from a processing plant that she built herself at the back of her property, with room dedicated to each part of her business.
