Our aim is to raise as close to 1 million Forints as possible for our Tanzanian charity, Seeway. Students have been busily collecting sponsorship from friends and family with some persuasive individuals managing to collect pledges totalling more than 100,000HUF. Although the morning was dreary, the atmosphere was positive and enthusiastic. All students completed the 5km run, 2km skip and 2000m climb.
All these funds raised will be used by Seeway to buy materials such as wood, to make goat-sheds and school desks, solar-panel units for families in the villages of Kitefu and Imbaseni and even to donate a live goat to families in need. More importantly, our students will learn basic brick-laying, carpentry and plastering skills from local tradesmen who gain employment through the Seeway charity.
Thank you to all who supported this event.
