                       August 2008 newsletter Issue

Another two schools are being assisted

Sagambe High School and Sagambe Primary School
both are many kilometres from the city of Mutare in a very rural and remote area

Our problem is contacting them. Since just before the elections we have not been able to make contact with the schools. This is mainly due to a reluctance to make journeys that could put them at risk and the soaring cost of transport. Hopefully by the next newsletter we shall have made contact and have pictures and information for you.

 

In our last newsletter we introduced Beaulieu Primary School. We are waiting quotes for building a new toilet block and have been given some money by St Nicolas Church in Nuneaton which will buy them some much needed text books

Woodbridge School in Essex has lot of science books to send to Zimbabwean schools and they are fund-raising to help cover the shipping costs.

 Well done Year 9 and the staff who are
supporting them!

Fund Raising Abseil

Peter and daughter-in-law Caroline abseiled 100 feet down the side of the Coventry Hill Hotel in July to raise money for the charity. Next time you may want to join them raising money for Aid2Africa.co.uk

Desks Arrive at Beulah Heights School 14th July 2008

"1.7m Zimbabwean children are orphans, the highest per capita figure in the world.
30% of children in rural areas suffer from malnutrition.
50% of Zimbabwe’s population are under the age of 18."
Sources: Unicef, Save the Children May2008

Many children walk up to 12 kilometres to get to school in Zimbabwe. Some children don’t walk to school because they have no way of paying their school fees.
Aid2Africa.co.uk pays school fees for over 600 children in 7 schools in Zimbabwe.
