I am hoping to raise £1,800 to pay for 2 orphaned children in Zambia to continue their school education for the next 3 years, if I can raise more money additional childrens schooling can also be funded!

Betty (girl) and Talent (boy) have recently passed their grade 9 exams at PIZZ School Monze Zambia and the money will enable them to continue their education at a local secondary school, giving them a future with greatly increased opportunities.

This Hands Around the World project is especially important to me as it is coordinated by my Dad, Chris, he has been travelling to Monze in Zambia since 2003 and has been working closely with Mrs Sianga to help bereaved orphans of HIV/AIDS. 

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
