VOLUNTEER BUNTING MAKING
FOR CATCH THE DREAM LAUNCH PARTY
Thursday 19th April - 11.00am - 1.00pm

CATCH THE DREAM is new local social enterprise working with villagers in a remote village in Sierra Leone, West Africa. The village was decimated by Ebola. Many lives were lost, but additionally because of quarantine and the Ebola spread-prevention measures (all their possessions had to be burned), they lost their harvest and all their tools. They consequently became unnecessarily dependent on food aid. Catch the Dream is about working with them as partners to help them get back on their feet, reclaim their farming livelihoods and help them explore non-farming livelihoods too.

They have a launch party / fundraiser on 28th April. and The Place to BE has offered to support it by sewing some long lengths of bunting from some African fabric to help decorate their party room.
