Oxfam have joined forces with Gospel House this Christmas to put a smile on the faces of Sri Lankan children. With every purchase of a handmade, educational Clock Puzzle or Alphabet Wooden Snail Puzzle, the equivalent toy has also been gifted to a child in Sri Lanka.
An estimated 70% of Sri Lanka's unemployed are aged between 15 and 25. Unemployment is especially common in rural areas, pushing people into the cities in search of work. This breaks up small rural communities and threatens the survival of indigenous cultures. Gospel House Handicrafts was set up to tackle youth unemployment in a way, which allows young people to work in their local area and preserves indigenous traditions. The organisation aims to help all less privileged young people, regardless of race, caste or religion. By providing economic security, Gospel House not only helps its own artisans, but the entire community they live in.
