CWS Newsletter

The quarterly Christian World Service letter reports on the work of our partners, campaign news, what New Zealand support is helping to achieve in emergency situations and how our supporters are joining in the global struggle against poverty and injustice.


Latest issue:  Give Girls a Fair Go: At 14, Pooni is glad to be back home.  She has spent the last 18 months working long hours in a woollen factory.  She wanted to help her poor family, but the conditions were unbearable.  The Women Development Resouce Centre made sure she was paid and persuaded her family to let her return to school.  Campaigning against the Sumangali scheme, a form of bonded labour is part of the work they do with some of the poorest communities.  Read more in the Autumn Story.

Support the Autumn Appeal, so our partner can make sure girls have the confidence and support they need to escape violence and poverty.
