Stawell Secondary College students are keeping warm this winter thanks to women in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Students are buying gloves made by Nepali women as a fundraiser to help empower women living in the Himalyan nation. The women are supported by the Bright Future Community Centre in Kathmandu.
The centre works to promote education of women and children by facilitating ways for them to earn a living; giving them a hand up, not a hand out. Activities include learning sewing and computer skills.
Stawell Secondary College is selling the gloves for $10, which are available from the school’s office.
