Partnership - with a Twist
The Congregational Federation is supporting two partnership projects:
El Salvador/Honduras - Empowering Women and Girls
Ethiopia - Healthier futures for Women and Girls.
The Federation have committed to raising £10,000 across the two projects (£5,000 for each one). The Ethiopia project runs until October 2017 and the one in El Salvador/Honduras until August 2018.
The total cost of the Ethiopia project is £360,000 and the El Salvador/Honduras project is £825,000. What makes these true partnerships are two distinctive features.
- Christian Aid is partnering with a number of churches, church groups and denominations across the UK in these partnerships, not just the Congregational Federation.
- Christian Aid has already agreed with the European Union (EU) that it will more than match every pound that we raise.
Across the two projects, the EU will contribute a further £4 for every £1 we raise. So the £10,000 contribution from Congregational churches to Christian Aid across the two projects will become £50,000 by the time it reaches Christian Aid partners in Africa and Central America.
Support the Community Partnerships
It is easy to donate to these appeals. You can donate online or by sending a cheque to the Federation offices in Nottingham. If you wish, you can specify which of the two appeals you church wishes to support. Please do not send any money directly to Christian Aid.
