Big thanks to these two generous companies; Welding Engineers and Lochlie Construction for their kind donations and agreeing to partner with us on two projects for the Foundation. One of our trustees has been working hard behind the scenes to make this happen.
Welding Engineering have kindly donated money which is being used for costs associated with the apprenticeship project. They are delighted that the apprentices have started making the eco stoves which will, initially, benefit the vulnerable in the community. “It’s great to see what simple things, like the eco stoves, can do to help.”
There are many benefits to these stoves including the fact that they use far less wood. Here is a link to see how they are made. https://rippleafrica.org/…/Changu-Changu-Moto-step-by…
Photos of the first eco stoves were sent to Ripple Africa and they emailed back to say how delighted they were “Thanks for sharing your wonderful news and success.” The overall aim is that the apprentices make the bricks and build enough stoves for the entire village. This will enable the villagers to have safer cooking facilities which are quicker and use less wood, meaning less time spent searching for wood and better for the environment. There will also be more trees planted as funds allow. A great project for the whole community and one that the apprentices can be proud of.
Lochlie Construction have generously donated money for Levison to buy an incubator to hatch more eggs from The Foundation chickens. We are looking forward to seeing the photos of that project as the first baby chicks hatch. Thank you so much to these two very generous companies. We are delighted that you’ve invested in us and the wonderful work being done in Malawi by The William Stewart Foundation, whom we raise funds and awareness for. Together we are #changinglives
If anyone else would like to partner with us then please do get in touch. Thanks. Sarah x
