Making a real difference.

A pupil whose proud parents were there to see her receive her award
We were proud to attend and contribute to the end of year open day at Sizo school. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful, happy day celebrating the achievements of not only the learners but teachers as well.
As many of you who have visited Sizo school when on Safari with us this year will know, we still face challenges in terms of improving resources and addressing a crumbling infrastructure. However we are making some real progress.
The children may come from a poor rural area, but that doesn't dampen the happy spirit at the school, that is encouraging and captivating. From teachers through to the learners the feeling is one of wanting to improve and develop, and of-course have some time for fun as well.
Thank you very much to everyone who has helped and supported us with our schools program this year. Next, we aim to help to rebuild the kitchen and improve the sewage system. We  have also had some great news with the offer of sponsorship for the school football team from a UK professional club. More on that soon.
For now, well done to everyone at Sizo.
It was very touching at the end of the day when the principle, teachers and parents collectively thanked us and all of our safari guests who have made donations to the school. We are making a real difference to the lives of these children. Thank you all and long may it continue.
INGWE head researcher Tara Pirie assisted with the prize giving. Volunteers from our wildlife campus  provide support to the teachers at the school by taking classes in IT, English and Sports during regular visits.
