I first went back a couple of years ago and since then the pupils have been fundraising for EducAid. Last November when I went in though, things notched up significantly. A good number of teachers got behind the project. Loads of them signed up themselves to be regular donors and different year groups organised different activities to get the money coming in. A month later, they sent in cheques totalling over £2500 enough to pay for over 20 children at EducAid for a year of food and education.

have something to give others.
