Our Circuit is attempting to raise £10,000 for a Christian Aid project "Transforming Women's Lives in Afghanistan‟.
Christian Aid‟s partner - the Afghanistan Women's Education Centre (AWEC) is taking steps with our support to make the lives of women and children in Afghanistan better. Work has continued relatively smoothly despite the difficulties surrounding the 3rd presidential election.
New women and youth shuras continue to be successfully established. Since the project began AWEC has supported 1,200 women and 360 youths through capacity building workshops and literacy classes.
So far, as a Circuit we have raised nearly £7,500 which is fantastic! We still have plenty of events in the pipeline too and if your church hasn;t done anything yet - there is still time!
Events to come include:
8th September 7pm Fun Quiz at Tarvin
20th September 11am - 12.30pm Coffee Morning at Oakmere
27th September Murder Mystery Evening at Saltney
10th October Quiz Night 7pm at Saughall
19th October Caldy Valley Big Sing Circuit Service 4pm
Please pray for the project in Afghanistan, for families affected by conflict and for our partners who work, often at great personal risk, to support those in need. Thank you partnership has the power to end poverty.
