My story

[p]Bown Design and Build are proud to be associated with Msaada, the UK charity that assists the people of Rwanda to restore their dignity and livelihoods by establishing self-help projects that provide families with a sustained income.[/p] [p]The “Dairy Cow Project” enables families to become self-sufficient by giving them a European dairy cow that can produce 10 times more milk than a local cow, while the “Honey Project” provides families with modern high-yielding frame hives that allow them to generate an income through the production of honey and beeswax.[/p] [p]The charity also assists in developing local enterprise. The money that Alistair’s father, Malcolm, raised shortly before his death by cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats was vitally important for the construction of a new hospitality centre in the East of the country. The centre incorporates a conference room, history centre, restaurant and a craft area that displays and sells products made by various widow’s co-operatives in the area. The new conference room, which is used for weddings, seminars, workshops and training sessions, generates about £10,000 a year that is used to assist widows and orphans who are needy, old or disabled.[/p] [p]To find out more about how Msaada is empowering the people of Rwanada, please visit their website: [url=http://www.msaada.org]www.msaada.org[/url], or help support these projects and develop new ones by giving a donation here today.[/p]
