News from the Andrew Clark Trust
This month the Andrew Clark Trust is a hive of activity both inside and outside of the school. With so many children travelling from far and wide to come to our lessons, the classrooms have reached their full capacity.
Many Helping Hands
Ma Wyne and Zaw came to teach waste management and how they can make handicrafts out of waste products, and the children learnt a lot both in terms of how to dispose of waste, and also to make attractive products from it.
In December we had a group of teachers from Australia come for 3rd time. They came to do teacher training, and brought iPads with apps on them, to enhance their teaching. They also brought projectors, and now our teachers have access to so much teaching materials, and this has added so much to what they can offer the students, and are inspiring the children.
Outside of the school we are joined again by the Aussie building team for the 4th time. They are here to pay and organise for 6 more toilets to be built and also a shack for a homeless woman and her son. They are also looking into a water project which they are raising funds for. This involves finding land to build a water irrigation system. This will be fantastic for the area in times when there is no water.
Progress of the Trust and the school is built on the continued efforts of our volunteers and we are so grateful for the time and hard work they give us. Thanks to Joe, Tim, Jane, Jamie, Luke and Jack who have been here previously and Jennifer and Brant who are involved in the project and also teaching IT.
Your support really does make a difference.
Without your help, none of this is possible.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT. PLEASE NOTE THAT 100% OF ALL DONATIONS GO TOWARDS EDUCATION AND HEALTHCARE
