African Connections - 30th November

One World Shop celebrates Scottish-African partnerships

Join us at One World Shop to hear about how Scotland's links with Africa are helping groups of producers and their communities, and women & children in Uganda, Malawi and South Africa.

Our culinary introduction to the night includes wonderful vegetable curry, with sauce from Swaziland, served with rice from Malawi.

Several groups are joining us to talk about the work they do in Africa, how it helps and what you can do to increase their support.

The LifeStitches Uganda
project empowers HIV/AIDS women with children in Arua, Uganda to become financially self sufficient through the sale of beautiful cotton table products which the women stitch in a sewing workshop business. They also have an AIDS Orphan School Program, Bike Repair Shops and Ride to Own Bike Programs.
The Scotland Malawi Partnership is a membership based NGO which exists to inspire the people and organisation of Scotland to be involved with Malawi in an effective way that benefits both nations. Their projects build connections and collaboration, creating partnerships and joint working.
Kilombero Rice from Malawi
JTS - Just Trading Scotland is a fair trade organisation that One World Shop have been working with for a long time. They are the first organisation to bring fair trade and organic coconut milk into the UK and are now pushing for fair trade Kilombero rice to be sold in many more shops, specifically The Co-op, to help the farmers in Karonga, Malawi.
BE United is an international culture and development organisation focusing on sports, arts and creative industries. Their work is designed to improve life chances of young people across cultures and thereby contribute in the promotion of social justice. They inspire and create opportunities by promoting cross-cultural connections between both Scotland and Africa.
