Studio Update!

Happy New Year to you all!  We hope 2015 is off to a great start! 

We've been getting back into the swing of things here at the studio and are busy working on some pretty exciting projects - more on that later!

In other exciting news; many of you would have met Bridie, one of the F&S team, Bridie is heading off overseas with her charity Ndoto Afrika. Ndoto Afrika is a grass roots initiative which focuses on fundraising for and overseeing sustainable, community based projects in Africa. 

Bridie on her last trip to Africa

Ndoto Afrika events over the last two years have not only been important fundraisers but have also been incredibly fun nights, filled with art, music and great food. The Melbourne event was held here in the Frankie and Swiss studio.
Bridie's hard work and passion we've seen over the last few years has resulted in the first project getting under way in Tanzania. Bridie will travel to Chamwino in Morogoro (Tanzania) where the community is in desperate need of basic sanitation facilities. Ten toilets will be built in three different schools, making a huge difference to the well being of the student's and their access to education. On-going education for the community on hygiene will also be a focus to ensure the sustainability and longevity of the project.

Here at Frankie and Swiss we are super proud of Bridie's amazing dedication to such a worthwhile project and we wish her all the best on her trip. She will be missed here in the studio for the month that she's away!
