Great news from Tickbird!  The Tickbird Women’s Group have completed their official Co-operative training on site with the Ministry of Industry and Trade and are well underway with the next stage of the registration process. To demonstrate equality within the group, the women have been invited, and given the option, to also welcome men into the group giving them the full support of their husbands.
To mark the occasion, this amazing group will now be renamed the “Tickbird Co-operative”.  Congratulations to them for their hard work as well as their commitment …

Thank you to Abbey and Charlotte, our friends from St Margaret’s College in New Zealand, for coming to visit us and some very excited girls at Lilongwe Girls School recently. It was lovely for them to see the results of all the hard fundraising work that they have been doing with Educating Girls Globally (http://educategirlsglobally.weebly.com/) and they really enjoyed some fantastic dancing and singing from the girls too!  Take a look at the photos….
