21 Sep Zanzibar Sponsorship Update
This year we are delighted to be continuing our sponsorship of Zulekha – a little girl from Zanzibar, Tanzania, who attends KINS (Kiwengwa Nursery and Primary School). Our sponsorship ensures that Zulekha can keep her place at this fantastically creative school, and will cover her uniform and equipment costs for the year as well as tuition fees.
Last year, Zulekha’s confidence in the Nursery class came on in leaps and bounds and her learning showed great progress as a result. We receive yearly reports for Zulekha, and we stay in regular touch with teachers at the school to find out how she’s getting on. Life in Zanzibar is very different to the busy London life that our children here experience, and this year class 3D will be making penpal links with the lower junior class at KINS. This is a truly fantastic experience for all, and children in 3D are excited to be sharing their letters and experiences with their new friends.
There will be a whole host of fundraising opportunities organised by the children as well as our annual collection at the Christmas production, so watch this space for opportunities to get involved! Finally, the parents, teachers and children at KINS would like to say a special thank you to the Year 6 parents of 2015/16 who donated an additional £200 at the end of the year to the school and to Zulekha. Thank you!
