Winning Women Worldwide.

Since 2004, the work of WWW has grown rapidly. Jackie was
invited by the Ndola Police Force to share her vision to all the police officers
– men and women and after that meeting she was asked if the Ndola Police Force
could become part of the WWW organisation. Due to the work WWW is doing amongst
the police, the vision and purpose of WWW has spread to other police forces
throughout Zambia. Over the past 6 years Jackie has visited Police communities
in other provinces speaking to both men and women police officers. They too,
have now come under the umbrella of WWW. This has brought hope to the women and
projects have been set up from finance raised by WWW UK. Sewing machines have
been bought and distributed and tailoring schools have been established.
Tailoring instructors have been employed by WWW to teach the women how to sew.
