* £1.00 per month over a year means a woman who
has nothing could raise 2 pigs, and plant a field of
peanuts to bring more security to her family.
£2.00 per month over a year would plant 150 trees
which would make the soil and land richer and less vulnerable
to drought, or provide valuable income resources to
women such as fruit and nuts.
£6.00 per month over a year would train a Village
Birth Attendant to greatly improve the health and safety
of women giving birth, help children to be healthier,
and reduce the incidence of female genital mutilation.
£12 per month over a year would buy a donkey cart
for an extended family so that they can transport many
essential materials and reach new markets.
£20 per month over a year would provide literacy
and management training for 10 villages to run their
own Credit Unions and Cereal Banks to overcome hardship
and alleviate problems of drought years.

to hear from Volunteers with skills.
Sponsor a Well!
If you would like to transform the life of a whole village,
or if a business or group would like to fund a well
as a memorial, we are able to do this. A particular
name can be inscribed into the well, and photos can
be provided. The wells we build are substantial, allowing
6 women to draw water at once, and are very durable.
As the water table in our area is so deep (50-80m) and
the geology is variable, building costs are high and
range from £1,500-9,000 for the materials only.
All labour is given voluntarily by men in the village.

very big thankyou to everyone who has supported our
work. It is wonderful to see the transformation taking
place: how much healthier and brighter so many women
and children look from when we started, and the many
ways that living conditions are improving. We are very
grateful to everyone, and especially to those who make
standing orders, or who leave us a legacy, and to the
remarkable individuals, as well as family trusts and
Churches who give us such key support.
you to all of you who chose to sponsor specific projects
such as the training of a Village Birth Attendant, a
family donkey cart, tree planting, to increase our Women's
Credit, or to sponsor a well.
are also very grateful to people who have donated to
Joliba through organised events, such as open gardens,
garage and car boot sales, auction sales, coffee mornings,
sponsored events, people who have replaced Christmas
or birthday presents with a gift to one of our projects,
or encouraged funds to be donated to our work by organisations
or businesses you know.

is a small charity and so not so many people have heard
of it, so its need is great. I like the fact that the
people in the villages are consulted in which projects
are to be funded and that less money used in administration
and it's unlikely that money will be wasted. I also
like the type of project that Joliba funds such as the
microcredit and all the smaller ways in which the lives
of the villagers can be improved.
