Tim and I believe strongly in using our work to help others less fortunate than ourselves. A portion of the revenue earned from The Tudor Society will go to our favourite charity, Rope.
Rope (Relief for Oppressed People Everywhere) is committed to combating the impact of oppressive poverty across the world. Motivated by Christian compassion, Rope works through a network of partners (Ropeholders). They share their goal of actively addressing the immediate needs of individuals and communities, whilst always striving to create a vision for long term sustainable change in the lives of the poor.
100% of all gifts given to Rope are used for the direct benefit of the poor. Rope has a separate charity, Friends of Rope, which fundraises to cover the running costs of the organisation. Find out more at http://www.rope.org.uk/
The project we are supporting at the moment is in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The Ropeholder there is endeavouring to train young women, who have come from very difficult family circumstances and have been sex workers from a very young age. The project trains them in tailoring and sewing and provides pastoral care and support for them. Once they have graduated, they receive their own sewing machine and many have gone on to start up small successful businesses in their local communities. It's a very worthwhile project and we are honoured to be involved in it.
