Riding the Rainbow Poetry Collection

"Margaret is a traveller who, in the tradition of great poets, has an extraordinary gift for finding a visual image or a spoken phrase which somehow conjures up a person, a place, a culture, a moment in time." - John Benington

Long term supporter and trustee of FIGS, Margaret Eddershaw, wrote this collection of poems inspired by her travels in South Sudan and beyond. The book was published in 2015 in order to promote and raise funds for Ibba Girls School.

Riding the Rainbow costs just £7 including UK postage and packaging. You can order your copy here.

All of the proceeds go directly towards supporting the work of the school.

Lydia Women's Co-operative Embroidery

Lydia Women’s Co-Operative is formed of fifteen women, brought together by membership of the Mother’s Union and love of their traditional embroidery. Working under the guidance of Asunta Abdallah Mbake, they are creating colourful bedcovers, large and small tablecloths, cushion-covers and aprons.

The project started in January, 2018 and is sponsored by a FIGS Trustee. As the project develops, it is intended that the women will teach embroidery at the girls’ school and have the opportunity to attend classes themselves.

Keep your eyes peeled: the Co-operative plans to sell its works in the UK and the women will receive all monies from sales.
