ibbi and Magic Bus: today’s news from Parvati Pujari

Parvati Pujari: an inspiration to us all

Huge congratulations to the wonderfully dedicated and highly motivated Parvati Pujari (introduced in our ibbi blog April 12) who works tirelessly as a training officer with our favourite charity Magic Bus in Mumbai. Today we had an email from her saying she’s been chosen to attend the ‘United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace Youth Leadership Masters Programme’ (snappy!) which happens in Florida this Summer. Parvati, the daughter of unskilled construction workers, attended Magic Bus sessions from the age of nine. The sessions gave her the necessary confidence to exercise choice and resist the pressure from her parents to marry young. She went on to gain a bachelors degree in commerce. She’s a passionate advocate for sport as a development tool and recognises the importance of engaging adolescent girls. She’s an inspiration to us all.

Please remember our ibbi 100 product this month, our hand painted ceramic ramekins (£11 each and every one unique). All profits from the sale of these little gems goes to support the work of Magic Bus in India. Our ramekins are great for all sorts: olive oil, nuts, seeds, puds, trinkets, keys and sweet treats. Perfect pressies. Dishwasher safe. Glorious colours too!
