Susan has sent some more pictures of a meeting she had yesterday with the women at Ndirande and at Soche East.
Susan is in Malawi and has run workshops for Ndirande and Soche East groups and for Chilomoni and the Tailors teach them how to make a reversible messenger bag.
We have had a successful time with stalls at various Christmas Fairs in the North West. Susan has also given an illustrated talk with a sales table.
Thank you to all who helped make the Autumn Fair such a great success. £449 was raised for the work of Chifundo in Malawi.
The Women Making a Difference Meeting was held on Saturday 24 September 2016.
The 2016 AGM of Chanasa took place on Sunday 4 September in Soche East, Blantyre, Malawi. Women from all the groups were represented along with Akuzikie, Judith, Susan and other trustees. The photos are of Judith and Akuzikie at the front, the women at the meeting and Akuzikie showing the material form MUST (Malawi University of Science and Technology) from which Chanasa have been asked to make sample products.
The ladies in all the goups in Malawi worked really hard to complete the order of products for the College of Medicine on time. They completed 10 bags, 20 ties, 20 Bow ties, 50 scarves, 50 serviettes, 20 table runners and 350 chair covers in only a few weeks. Susan ran a workshop while she was in Malawi to teach a group how to make the bowties and then they completed the 20 required. The ladies had production lines running to complete the products. The bags were so popular that they were asked to make more!
