2016 Christmas Newsletter Now Available

2016 Christmas Newsletter Available Now

Read all about what we've achieved in 2016 and how you can give Cecily's Fund a great start to next year in our Christmas newsletter - available to download now.

For Cecily's Fund, Christmas means an opportunity to look back at the year we've had, and also to launch our annual Christmas Challenge. Our last newsletter of each year is a key way for us to do both: and it's available to download now or to read online using Issuu.

In our latest exciting publication, you can read about some of the highlights of our work in 2016: from community-powered savings groups to the empowering effect of entrepreneurship training. You can also enjoy two brand-new interviews, one with long-time supporter Tonie and another with Linda, a key member of staff for our partners Afya Mzuri. Better yet, learn all about our 2016 Christmas Challenge, and all the fun things you can do to help us raise £20,000 and power us into our 20th anniversary year, 2017.

For all this and more, simply download your copy today. If you're not yet a subscriber to our newsletter, you can sign up right from our homepage in just a few seconds.

Happy reading - and thank you for your support in 2016!

AR 2015 News Story

Learn more about our exciting progress in 2015 by downloading our latest annual review.

In 2015, Cecily’s Fund continued to make a tremendous impact on the lives of orphaned and young people in Zambia - and our latest annual review is the best way to get up to speed with our progress. This 28-page document is now available to download from our website and is full of interesting details, stories, and a summary of our accounts.
 
Last year, our work took some major steps forward. We secured a second grant from Comic Relief for our exciting three-year Connecting Communities programme; we began to reorganise our work under four key themes; and we re-structured our fundraising work to strengthen our foundations for growth. At the same time, we continued building our existing work to help children access school, to improve their health outcomes, and empower their communities.
 
Highlights of our 2015 annual review include:
  • Introductions from our Chair and Director
  • Summaries of all our work, organised under our four new themes
  • Stories of the children we support, from talented artist Isaac to entrepreneur Malumbo
  • Details on all our aims for 2016-17
  • An informative financial summary
Please download our 2015 annual review today and find out more about the difference we’ve made together. You can find older annual reviews and reports in our resources library.
