We are delighted to announce that we have chosen the WONDER Foundation as a preferred charity partner for a number of upcoming projects.
WONDER has a mission to empower women and girls through quality education and access to good work and supports a number of global projects to deliver on this mission.
Our contributions will be routed to the Ilomba Health Centre and Rural School; based in the Bingerville province, south-eastern Ivory Coast. The school runs sewing and entrepreneurship training that strengthens self-employment opportunities for women between 18 and 40 years old.
Managing Director of David and Charles, James Woollam, said:
“We want to be a socially aware business and have prioritised this decision to work with WONDER and a separate project to re-define our sustainability and environmental policy. We invited staff to propose charities we might work with and chose WONDER from those nominations.
We’re excited to be supporting this important cause which is particularly relevant to our staff, authors and customers.”
We made an initial donation to WONDER in December 2019.
Further projects are in planning for 2020 and will include donating a percentage of receipts from certain new books and various sales and marketing opportunities that will directly benefit the charity.
