Welcome to our new School Aid volunteer

Welcome to Sam, our new School Aid volunteer, who has chosen to help in the warehouse as part of his Duke of Edinburgh award.

Sam said he chose School Aid as he appreciates how lucky he is to attend a school where everything is provided for and in such a great learning environment. He would like to make a difference to someone who does not have the same opportunities as he has. He is enjoying his time at the warehouse and appreciates the warm and friendly atmosphere.

French books arrive in Waounde, eastern Senegal

French books sent to Waounde in eastern Senegal in September 2016 have arrived.

These books were shipped by a small charity based in Munich, set up by Waounde villagers working in Munich, to support and help develop their home town. When the books arrived, the library was still in development, but is now nearing completion and plans to be fully open in September when the new school year starts.

The photo above shows the teachers and one of the people who helps manage the project, standing outside the library.
