The Sailors’ Society
We gave a grant to The Sailors’ Society who, from their offices in Southampton, assist a support group for wives and children of Philippine sailors. These families are very poor and therefore, vulnerable.
This Society provides free education and training workshops to learn IT skills, money management, nutrition, and English. They also provide start-up costs for income-generating projects, which lead to increased financial freedom for the families, and reduces the risk of poverty. Last year almost 250 people were given help.
