At the end of our first year, we donated all of our profits to TASTE Charity. An incredible total of £5000! This helped to repair two boreholes for a rural community in Nigeria. It also facilitated a ‘WASH’ workshop, which is an initiative to teach villagers how to maintain good basic hygiene practices.
After another successful year, we were delighted to announce the donation of all of our second year’s profit TASTE Charity. An incredible total of £5608. This donation has made a massive difference for those attending a school in Uganda. It has provided them with a new borehole, latrines and a ‘WASH’ workshop. This has transformed lives in the community! Freshwater can now be gathered safely.
After an amazing third year of trading, we were able to donate an incredible £7000 to TASTE Charity! This money helped fund a water project at Rurcon’s new headquarters site in Jos the State Capital of Plateau State.
Rurcon is a pan-African Christian NGO based in Jos. It helps Christian churches and development organisations promote good governance and sustainable development. It also assists churches and agencies to run training courses including training communities to evaluate the results of projects delivered by or aid agencies. Rurcon also helps communities to have increased access to safe water, health facilities, road networks and enhanced food security.
700 farmers were trained in Plateau State in 2016, more than half of whom were women.
Our donation helped to provide a solar powered borehole to ensure the availability of water all year round especially during the Dry Season for the irrigation of the extensive crop growing programme which is used for practical training of farmers from communities across Nigeria and neighbouring countries.
