Social Postcards — Power Porridge

JAMBO   T here. These are my social postcards to share on any social media channel you fancy.
They were all taken on Sunday at the Omega Foundation. This organisation receives funding from Comic Relief that enables them to support these women in the production of “Power Porridge” and also helps form saving groups to fund its production.

There a number of groups supported by the Omega Foundation, the one we visited is called Rafiki which is the Swahili word for “my friend”.    Some of the ladies are farmers who sell their crops to the group, others are involved in the milling process, all are involved in the mixing and packaging.   They use the porridge themselves to boost their own nutrition and also to sell for extra income.

How to send a Social Postcard:
1. Pick a photo from the selection below and save the image to your computer or mobile phone.
2. Upload the photo to your social media account(s) of choice.
3. Use one of the messages below or add your own text, including the hashtag #lastingchange.
4. Share!  It would be amazing to give all these women a voice on the internet tomorrow and to share the difference donations to Comic Relief are making to the lives of people leading really difficult lives.
