Rotary International has long been a loyal supporter of ABCDreams and our work in Marangu West Tanzania.
This year the Newmarket Club of Rotary International presented a grant to ABCDreams to be utilized for support of the recently formed local women’s cooperative, Care ABCD Tanzania. These women are volunteering their time away from their subsistence farms to sew and assemble for sale, menstrual care kits for girls and women in the villages. They also make their own soap for use in the kits and for sale to the community.
The funds will be used for purchase of material and supplies which are difficult for the women to access in Tanzania. The group is working hard and moving towards self sufficiency through the sale of these kits and soap.
Many thanks go out to Newmarket Club of Rotary International for their support of these women!
