UK Government Pledges to Make SCIAF Wee Box Twice as Big!

Posted on August 22, 2014 at 9:17 AM
 
Many of us will be well aware of the SCIAF Wee Box, a little bit of cardboard that sits in our homes every Lent collecting pieces of copper, silver, and even the odd note.  It has been a part of our Catholic tradition in Scotland for many years now and has resulted in an incredible amount of money being raised and put to good use by the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund.
 
This is all good, but can you imagine if the money you put in your Wee Box was to be doubled?  In fact, imagine all of the money deposited into every Wee Box being doubled!  Well, that is what is going to happen in 2015 – the year of SCIAF’s 50th anniversary - thanks to the UK’s Department for International Development.  The government department has pledged to match all monies raised in next year’s appeal in order to help women farmers in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi and Rwanda to grow more food, boost their incomes and have a bigger say in their communities.
