I've been running a Useful Gift Shop for 11 years. I feel that people love buying useful gifts that bring real meaning. This is my small way of helping to bring about a better tomorrow for communities facing poverty. Lorna from Malvern, Australia.

Previously we worried about our children’s education. We always talked about the issue. We prayed about the issue. God has answered our prayer. We can see the difference… As mothers we see the fruits of the project. Mothers from Damboya district, Ethiopia.
