Team Honk is about bloggers raising money and awareness for Comic Relief. To celebrate International Women’s Day #iwd2014, Tanya, Annie and Penny are in Tanzania finding out how donations to Sport Relief last year have created female entrepreneurs and #lastingchange for women, their families and communities and beyond – rippling out #lastingchange in Africa.
Here’s a postcard just for you, all the way from their trip.
Claudia is an inspirational 54 year old mother and grandmother who, with support from The Gatsby Trust has turned a her hobby of soap making into a profitable business. A year ago when Claudia first starting receiving support for TGT she was producing 20 litres of liquid soap a month, selling to friends and family. Now, just one year on Claudia produces 3,000 litres per month, employs two people and she not only sells to friends, family and local community but also supplies products to hotels and shops. Claudia, like the other women we’ve been meeting on our trip, spends time training other women both locally and in further afield.
