Maggie Barclay, who has run the Mayagna Children’s Fund with her sister Kate since 2008 and is also a Trustee, has written two books about the work of the Fund.
Rice and Beans tells a story of sisters who travel.A journey by train with Auntie Bette in a sweetie jar leads to one thing and another.
But neither Kate nor Maggie expected to find themselves in a dugout canoe travelling up the Waspuk and Pispis Rivers in the Nicaraguan rainforest. The book gives an insight into why two women decided that helping out a charity in Nicaragua was the way to go.
Tuppeny Rice is a follow up to Rice and Beans. It explains how the Mayagna Children’s Fund works in Nicaragua and who it helps. Indispensable reading for anyone interested in the workings of a small charity in a developing country.
