Elilta’s Saturday Girls’ Club

Our Safeguarding supervisor, Elilta, has started a Saturday Club for the girls at the Blind School, where they can feel relaxed about discussing women’s issues, personal hygiene, etc, possibly for the first time.  Click here to see a short clip of the club in progress – remember, all the girls are blind.

Cycling New Zealand

Ian Draper, our founder, did indeed “Cycle New Zealand” during January and February; if he looks a little grim in this shot, he’s just cycled all the way up 90 Mile Beach.
