See the purses that were sent here
We have been sent 4 purses to raise funds for TANU. When they arrived they were accompanied by lots of letters.
These have been written by the youth who use the skills centre.
They were written for them to introduce themselves, and I would like to share them with you.
Although we might read them as begging, they are not, all they want is help for the skills centre so they can continue to learn – most of them have not been to school, or had to leave when very young.
For me the most powerful aspect I wish to share is that every person on this planet has the right to equal opportunities.
What those opportunities are and how they should be shared out across the globe is something we need to address. Equalling doesn’t have to be ‘upwards’ it can’t be if we are to regenerate our biosphere to redress the damage we have done.
Let’s look at how we achieve equality differently.
