Start-Up Clothing Brand Prints and Lace becomes SOS Africa Child Sponsor
09 Aug 2017
We are pleased to announce that exciting new clothing brand “Prints and Lace" has become the latest in a number of small businesses to sponsor the SOS Africa children...
Prints and Lace is an invigorating start-up brand specialising in fun and ready to wear pieces made from African inspired cottons and laces; aspiring to be a fun, bold and ethical brand. Prints and Lace founder Cathy Ofuasia, herself a wife and mother of two, has a keen interest in the well-being of underprivileged kids and recently contacted SOS Africa to offer her support:
“We chose SOS Africa because of their holistic approach towards the education and care of their children and the fact that 100% of our donation goes towards this. It is refreshing to see a charity promoting such happy children and taking such a big focus on their social and mental well-being.”
The beneficiary of this new collaboration, 11-year-old Kim from Somerset West, is the latest child to be supported by SOS Africa’s fast-growing Somerset West Education Programme. Thanks to the long-term sponsorship provided by Cathy, Kim will now receive a holistic education including school tuition, school clothing and stationery, aftercare support each afternoon and transportation to and from school each day.
SOS Africa Trustee Emma Rose-Ellis is delighted by this new partnership:
“It is fantastic what can be achieved when small, ethically-driven businesses join forces with grass roots charities. We wish Cathy and her exciting new venture every success and look forward to updating her on Kim’s progress.”
