There are many ways you can support the ministry:
Would you be willing to organise a coffee morning in support of kids4school?
Hold it in your home or church hall and invite your friends around for cup of tea or coffee?
If so we can supply you with a short, but interesting DVD of the work of kids4school.
UPDATE – on scholar packs
Schools in Tanzania that have little or no reading or writing material. Sometimes the only person with a book or writing material is the teacher.
Up to now we have been shipping these ‘Scholar Packs’ from home, however the Tanzania government have dramatically increased the customs duty so this has made shipping unrealistic.
If you decide to participate in this part of the ministry you can pay the cost and we will purchase items in Tanzania.
- A4 Writing Pad
- Pack of Pencils and Biro Pens
- Pack of Colouring Pencils, not felt tip
- Geometry Set. i.e. ruler, protractor and square
- Rubber and Pencil Sharpener
- Small Calculator
This personal gift to a child will become a treasured possession and a useful tool for their education.
Kids4school is working with these schools to provide suitable textbooks, and with your help would like to provide individual ‘Scholar Packs’ for each child to help with their learning.
Because of situation with Transport we will not be taking any desks (or any items) to send to Tanzania until further notice
In the government schools in Tanzania where kids4school works, many of the children are without desks and have to sit on the floor.
Part of the ministry and goal of kids4school is that every child should have a desk to sit at and books to work with.
Schools in Northern Ireland are taking up the challenge and very generously are donating school desks to be shipped to Africa.
Re-Cycle your Desks
One such school is Abbey Primary in Newtownards. They have donated a large number of desks which have been stripped down and transported to Tanzania. kids4school, on behalf of the children and schools in Tanzania would like to thank Mrs P Magowan and the staff at Abbey Primary for their support.
These desks are used in local primary schools where many children have to sit on the floor for lack of desks and equipment.
Will your school be replacing their desks this year? Why not consider donating them to kids4school so they can be sent to African schools.
Volunteers in Action
Volunteers in action splitting the desks down so they are easier packed together to ship them in our container to Tanzania.
