Interact club meets representatives from the Wye Valley ProjectPosted on: 16/05/2019
The DGS Interact club recently invited two representatives from the Wye Valley Project in to school to speak with them about their link-school in Zambia, and the progress being made as part of the Wye Valley Zambia Project.
For the last year, the Interact club has been linked with Kabwata School, a new school that is growing but is desperate for many important resources. As part of this link, our girls have been collecting different donations to send over to help them improve their school and enable better and more education for the people of the local area. So far, the Interact club have sent school desks, textbooks, stationary resources, clothes and other school equipment that have been kindly donated by DGS parents or different departments in school and they are hoping to send another shipment of equipment out before the end of the summer term.
Tim and Linda, spoke with the girls about the area of Zambia that they are supporting and the challenges they face in accessing education as well as other basic amenities. Following this, there was the opportunity to ask questions about the project and a commitment from the girls to redouble their efforts and collect even more donations for Kabwata school. The Interact club thanked the visitors for their presentation and were really glad that they had the chance to see that their donations were having such a positive impact.
If you are a student looking to join a club at DGS, why not come along to C29 on a Wednesday lunchtime and you can get stuck in to one the many Interact charity awareness and fundraising projects taking place? For more information, talk to one of the club members around school (you can tell by their Interact badge on their uniform) or your Geography teacher.
