Littleover students and friends collect around 2,750 pairs of shoes for our partner school in Uganda.
Over the past five years, students from Littleover Community School, supported by staff and friends, have been working with the Child Africa charity school in Uganda. Children at the school come from very poor backgrounds and may have been homeless or orphaned. The school provides much needed education, food, shelter and medication for their pupils.
This year a phenomenal campaign has seen 2750 pairs of shoes collected through Littleover Community School which will be donated to students and their families in Uganda. Mr Moses, the project co-ordinator has been amazed by people’s generosity. “Thank you once again for your continued generous support. To a child that has never owned a pair of shoes in their lifetime, a pair of trainers or school shoes is an immeasurable gift”
A team of volunteers helped pack up the donations, which also included text books, clothes and over 160 beautiful knitted blankets, ready to be taken out to Uganda by the project team at the end of July. Former Head of Sixth Form, Jane Holden has been involved in the project from the start and has been co-ordinating knitting teams all over the country, including a choir in London, using social media and extensive contacts to spread the word. “The first year we did this, we made 22, the following year 64 and now we are up to an amazing 167 blankets.”
Each student has a 10kg personal luggage allowance to which the airline, Turkish, has kindly added extra so that each student carries an additional 20kg of donations to be given directly to the pupils and staff at ChildAfrica school when the group travel out to Uganda in July. Mr Moses stressed that this was one of the most important aspects of the scheme. “Every item donated will be given by us in person. Accountability is incredibly important. We want to make sure that the donations get straight to those who need them”
33 Students from Littleover Sixth Form have also helped raised £10,000 to carry out further work on the school when they visit. This will include funding a fence for the new school grounds, painting materials for the school and money for the vegetable fields that the team from Littleover set up on their first visit, five years ago. This year, students will be building the fence and developing the garden, enabling the school to be more self-sufficient in food production.
If you would like to get more involved in the Child Africa project, please contact Mr Moses and more information can be found at the charity’s own website:
Or if you would like to give us a donation to help us with our work, you can do this via Wisepay.
