School Build Project - Total Money Needed = £3,000.00 (Outer building only)

Add your main content here - text, photos, videos, addons, whatever you want!

To Raise the money required for daily living at the orphanage and also for the current school build project we are doing the following:-

  • Chigwere Orphan's have recently started to sell postcards to people who visit the safari camp nearby and hopefully these will be sold through the hotels in the town a few miles away.
  • The ladies who voluntarily look after the Chigwere Orphans have plans to start making items to sell such as bags and table cloths.
  • I am writing to various companies to try to get support.
  • I held a fundraising event in February 2010 (Overnight Ghost Hunt).
  • I have arranged another fundraising ghost hunt with Mysteria Paranormal Events in September 2010 - please click on our calander for futher details
  • Christmas cards are currently being sold (these can be purchased online or by myself in person).
Maybe you could hold a fundraising event or get sponsored for something to help us? Any amount raised makes a massive difference!
