Seven Wonders Challenge - fifth wonder
I wonder... how many fast flowing rivers you had to cross to get to school?
Thanks to PEPAIDS' Schools of Good Hope project the children of Matimbia Community School in Zambia no longer have to negotiate a river or risk being swept away in the wet season on their way to school. That's because we helped build a new classroom to cater for a whole new intake of pupils. We'd like even more children in Zambia be able to get to school without having to risk their safety. How about you?
The children of Zambia don't need your pity, they need a chance.
The Schools of Good Hope project is offering exactly that. In 2012 we gave more than 1000 children in Zambia a lifeline out of poverty. Will you help us continue our work?
Our Seven Wonders Challenge aims to raise at least £7,000 before Christmas to help reach seven additional schools in 2013. Join the challenge.
Fundraising from our Schools of Good Hope Project helped pay for a new classroom that enabled Matimbia Community School cater for an entire new intake of pupils. Having good school facilities near to their home means that these children don't have to walk through a river to get to school any more.
