Clogher GFS Coffee Morning

 

Revd Isobel Nixon, Diocesan Chaplain is hosting a Coffee Morning at her home, 59 Granshagh Road, Enniskillen on Saturday 6th October from 10.00am - 2.00pm. Proceeds are in aid of Girls Friendly Society 'World Project - Solomon Islands'. Revd Isobel worked in the Solomon Islands for 10 years and has some interesting items from the islands in her home.

Solomon Islands, as a developing nation, has encountered problems which affect young people. There are many social issues within families and communities. Some of the social issues on the increase are teenage pregnancies, HIV/AIDS, teenage marriages, domestic violence, substance abuse and criminal activities.

School drop outs have very little or no opportunity regarding jobs, sewing, and craft, weaving and catering. Financial illiteracy is a very serious problem.

Objectives of the GFS Project:

To equip women and girls with the skills necessary to carry out activities in leadership for community development.
To enable women, girls and youth to participate in community affairs and development especially in decision making processes.
To equip and empower young women with knowledge and skills enabling them to support the GFS programmes in the communities and churches.
To raise awareness of social issues affecting families and communities.


Please keep this date free, come along and support us in raising much needed funds for this project.
