The Mt. Pleasant Primary School in Ballarat has reached out to the orphans of Zambia by raising much-needed funds to build a water well for the Chibuli Orphan School . As of October 22nd, the school and its 216 students had raised $911.
Hands at Work CEO George Snyman visited the school in October, where he met the school’s Welfare Officer, Dani Reeve, who has been instrumental in organising the fundraising events. George was pleasantly surprised to be entertained by the wonderful school choir singing an African song, as well as the song-and-dance group, also performing to African music.
Dani says the school hopes to reach the $1,000 mark by the end of the year.
