Clearance Sale 14th and 15th February 2020


Well done, everybody!

Thanks to your generous support, our Annual Autumn Sale this year raised just over  13,000 euros,
thus topping last year’s figure by €2,000. The entire proceeds will as usual be channelled directly to sponsor welfare projects in and around IIembula, Tanzania; these include

  • providing ongoing support for Aids orphans,
  • supporting dedicated health and hygiene seminars in schools to promote sexual health awareness,
  • providing financial support for needy young people to enable them to attend school or pursue vocational training,
  • improving living conditions by installing water tanks and gutters, building school toilets for girls, funding low-fuel and comparatively smoke-free clay ovens,
  • initiating and funding agricultural projects.

You will find more details about our support programme under

We would like to thank all of you who contributed so generously to this cause

  • by donating books and DVDs – the response this year was again overwhelming, so much so that we will again be holding a clearance sale in February to clear the decks for next year’s autumn sale
  • by coming along to the sale and purchasing such large quantities of books and DVDs
  • by donating articles for the container which we have been sending directly to Ilembula twice a year; (for further details please see ).
