Congratulations to D Wotton winner of the March lottery.

You may be aware that new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into force in May. As one of the biggest changes to UK data privacy law, we have been looking at how these relate to Smalls and our supporters. In line with the new regulations, we have reviewed our approach and as part of this, we will no longer be publishing details of people we would like to thank on our website. We have enjoyed doing a shout out for everyone who has helped and we’re sorry that we won’t be able to support that approach after 20 May 2018. But our priority is always to manage any data that we hold in a secure and responsible way, and to build efficient processes to help us do that. We will be making sure that we continue to meet the data standards required, as you would expect of Smalls. 

Please know that we are eternally grateful and thankful for every donation. Your support is extremely valuable to Smalls, and the women and children we help in Africa.  Here is a link to the latest thank you post.  

As mentioned previously so that we can continue to send you our Talking Pants newsletter we need you to subscribe to our Talking Pants mailing list.  If you wish to receive our Talking Pants newsletter after 20th May please click here.

10,750 new pairs of pants on their way to Kenya and Malawi thanks to Balcraig.  Pants for the children that Kenya Children’s Home support in Kenya, and pants for the ladies being treated by Freedom from Fistula in Malawi and Kenya.  We also managed to get another 500 pairs of pants out to an organisation that supports the community around Wellspring in Uganda.
