Zia’s 1st Birthday
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
Our little ZiZi baby is turning one and we wanted to celebrate her birthday by supporting a cause through Palmera. Zia is privileged to have received lots of clothes, books and toys over the last year and most importantly lots of love from all of you. We would really like to take this opportunity to help make a positive impact in someone else’s life who needs it more by supporting the Graduating the Poor project.
Palmera is a not-for-profit organisation that focuses mainly on helping people in Sri Lanka who have been displaced due to the civil war. They help provide resources to those less fortunate which in turn enable them to be self-sufficient and financially independent.
About Graduating the Poor
There are women and men who live in absolute poverty in Northern Sri Lanka. The project is designed to address their immediate needs while also investing in their longer-term training, development and planning. It helps families secure the basic things like food and access to healthcare, but it also aims to build their financial resilience through savings. It also makes sure that these families are integrated in their community. At the moment, they are often very isolated, which just makes their situation even more dire.
With our help, families can find a better way to make a reliable income, therefore positively impacting current and future generations.
We hope that you can support those who are less fortunate through this campaign. We look forward to celebrating Zia’s 1st birthday with all of you.
Lots of Love,
Zia, Asha & Gowreeson xo
