A Postcard from Ghana - The Virtuous Women's Bakery

By Feistytapas @feistytapas
Who says that no one sends postcards anymore? I just received a wonderful one all the way from The Virtuous Women's Bakery in Ghana (Africa), where three awesome bloggers (also known as #teamhonk) have been witnessing all the good work that Comic Relief has been doing over the last 25 years. Being Spanish, of course I had never heard of Comic Relief or Red Nose Day until (I think it was) my second year in the UK so I'm talking 1998.

************************Dear MariaHaving an inspirational time in Ghana. Mothers and baby (check out the little feet!) at the Virtuous Women's Bakery and creche. The women make bread and sell it in the community while their children can play in the nursery. Their new oven was funded by Comic relief meaning they can scale up production and make more money selling more bread in the community. Financial independence is key to raising women's status and reducing poverty in society.
