Small items such as pens, pencils, erasers, notebooks, exercise books, sharpeners, simple picture/word books can be donated to our local nursery and primary schools and are always welcome. We prefer to take a boxful once or twice a season rather than disturb the day with guests arriving and the teachers making a song and dance of the whole episode (literally). The local families live in very humble conditions and we are very pleased when guests bring items of childrens' clothing, soft back packs, caps and flip flops. Another way to help (which some guests have already done) is to decide to sponsor a child to attend school. £60 per annum is sufficient to give a child the termly fees, uniform, a pair of shoes ,a daily lunch and pencils and paper. Most local families can only afford to send perhaps one child to school in a large family. Please see our
Foundation web site for details on sponsorship.
