Charity & Micro Enterprise

 
A key part of the Bright & Beautiful vision is to help women and children escape poverty or slavery through our charitable giving or micro enterprise funding.

Many vulnerable women and children lack basic food, water, clothing and education, things that we can take for granted in the UK, but we also support a local Manchester based charity which helps the homeless and underprivileged right here too.

Education and Business for Women & Children in Rwanda

Bright & Beautiful is aiming to fund and build a School & Training Centre in the heart of Cyabatanzi village, rural Rwanda. The aim is to give the children access to education and to give the adults practical training which will include: sewing and tailoring, organic farming and business skills.

What have we done so far?

Over the last two years we have bought and given over 50 goats as gifts to the women in Cyabatanzi village (mothers and grandmothers). The goats breed very quickly and therefore can produce a steady income for the ladies and their families in a relatively short period of time.

What have we done so far?

We have undertaken extensive repairs and refurbishment work to the homes of the poorest widows in Cyabatanzi village. Many of these structures are unsafe and not fit for purpose. A basic requirement in life is a safe, secure and water-tight home, it is our aim to help as many of these widows as possible.

What Next?

Instead of spending hours collecting water, we want the children of Cyabatanzi to be able to go to school. We have bought a plot of land in the middle of the village, the perfect place to build this school. It is our vision to have this school up and running in 2016.
