Volunteer Janet Moody took to the air on Sunday to present the BBC Radio 4 Appeal on behalf of Tools for Self Reliance.
Janet joined us ten years ago after a working life which spanned Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and many other countries in between. She now helps in the sewing machine workshop, where she can refurbish a 100 year old Singer hand machine and get it ready for decades more service, being used by people living in poverty to change their lives. Listen to Janet share the story of the difference a sewing machine can make to the life of a woman living in Sierra Leone.
As a result of the tools and training our production and income has increased.
