The Major piece of news is that the charity Action Aid have come on board, and will be the benefactors of any funds generated by the project. It was tough choosing which charity to go with, but Action Aid do some fantastic work fighting poverty worldwide. Their mission is to work with poor and excluded people throughout the world to eradicate poverty and injustice. Some of the issues Action Aid deals with are:
– women’s rights and gender equality – education – food rights – HIV & AIDS – emergencies and conflict – democratic governance – corporate accountability – trade justice – international aid and debt.
I’m sure you’ll agree these are some really worth while causes, and it’s great that the project will now be able to contribute to the great work that Action Aid does. Take a look at their website to see their work in more detail: www.actionaid.org.uk
In other news, Vera Bohl has an entry on her blog here about her shoot (with a horse!) which we did for the project. It includes these great ‘behind the scenes’ shots of the team hard at work. Thanks Vera!
