It works like this:
In the UK Alice has some toys or clothes that her children no longer use. By selling them, she gains a little cupboard space and some money. But since her children are a little older, she could do with some newer toys or clothes. So she sells and buys at the KWON Sale. Gets good quality goods at a good price, and gets some money back too. Win!
Nabulungi in Uganda is a nurse at Kagando hospital. She wants to help people get well, but needs some basics – training and medicine. Twice a year, the hospital receives money from the KWON sale so she can do her job. Win!
Julie helps at the KWON sale. Actually, she used to help when her children were younger, and now that she has grandchildren, she’s decided to help again. It’s hard work, but she really enjoys the sense of community. There are some people who she only sees a couple of times a year at the sale, and it’s great to catch up. She also appreciates that she’s helping Alice and Nabulungi. Rewarding. Win!
