Through sales of African beers/ciders, we support:

Women for Women in Africa

An entirely volunteer-run organisation that assists the children and families of the Kibera slum. On the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya, the Kibera slum covers an area of 630 acres, or around 10 times the size of the MCG, and is a place where over a million people live. Kibera was originally set up by the Kenyan government after WW1 to temporarily house those left homeless, but somehow the families sent there never left. The area grew and grew over the years but no infrastructure was ever put in place to provide the inhabitants with even the most basic of human needs. To this day, it remains a ‘temporary’ facility. http://womenforwomeninafrica.org.au/

Thanks for your support.
