Working with PCMUSA
Could YOU help? We are trying to knit up to 1000 little dolls for PCMUSA to sell and raise funds for PCMUK.
These little dolls are extremely easy to knit, take only a short while, and yet are so beautifully characterful. Please go to http://artycraftystuff.webeden.co.uk/ and contact us for more information.

If you'd like to keep up-to-date on recent works and plans, please do get in touch through the listed contact details! You'll find information there about how to get involved, either through prayer, time, or financially.
We have a variety of materials to help with RE and school assemblies here at the shop, and we try to spend time when we can in the schools with fairtrade goods, teaching children and youth about the importance of fair work and decent wages - for people we don't know as well as for those we do.
We provide the option for those involved with the school to take fairtrade stalls to school events, and we have on occasion held resource evenings in the shop, displaying and focusing on the materials that might help RE curriculums and Sunday Schools to engagingly and effectively teach their chosen subjects.
The Leprosy Mission
'We are an international Christian development organisation. We focus specifically on leprosy and offer specialist expertise on reconstructive surgery. We treat leprosy complications. We address the fear and stigma associated with having leprosy. Many people suffer in silence because they are too ashamed to find help or do not know where to get help. Our aim is to transform and empower the lives of people affected by leprosy.
We work in around 30 countries across Africa, South Asia and East Asia. Our services are provided regardless of religion or ethnicity, promoting equality and social justice.
Our work includes treating leprosy and providing general health care and health awareness training, training national health staff to diagnose and treat leprosy and prevent disability, providing surgery and physiotherapy, training people affected by leprosy in self-care (caring for areas of the body desensitised by leprosy to prevent injury and disability), providing education and vocational training, providing housing support, water and sanitation, providing small business loans and training to enable people affected by leprosy to escape poverty and become independent, and empowering people affected by leprosy and disabilities to lobby governments and employers for equal rights medical and social research...'

The Esther Benjamins Trust
'The Esther Benjamins Trust is a registered children's charity.
We excel in locating and rescuing Nepali children who have been trafficked or displaced into India and in supporting their post-rescue care - by reuniting children with families wherever possible, and by providing structured residential refuge in Nepal with access to education where not.
We provide for the full time residential care, education and training of 120 highly vulnerable children at two centres, Hetauda and Kathmandu (Godawari).
We lead the way in the rescue of trafficked and displaced Nepali children from India. We support schools in three regions – Godawari, Makwanpur (south Nepal) and Rupendehi (southwest Nepal). In Rupendehi this includes support to a school for deaf children in Bhairahawa and one for urban slum children in Butwal. We also host medical camps in Makwanpur. Training in the arts and crafts are central to the work of the Trust in Nepal. Our vocational courses provide an income to refuge leavers, trafficking survivors and to deaf young people, while being highly therapeutic and cathartic to those who have been victims of abuse and exploitation. Training in arts has extended to the performing arts - with astonishing results including Nepal's first contemporary circus company...'
