The Meserani Project

We are currently supporting 'The Meserani project'. The Meserani Project was set up by the pupils, staff, parents and friends of Acklam Grange School Middlesbrough (Mr Edwards' Secondary School). It has brought together young people from Africa and Teesside, and has made a huge impact on the lives of many children and families in developing areas of Kenya and Tanzania. 

Through this charity, we are in communication with a small Primary School in Meserani, Tanzania, called Losingira Primary School. We have sent some letters to the children of this School and expect to read the replies once the next expedition return from their trip. This is a fantastic opportunity for all of the children.

Thank you for dressing in colours of the Gambian flag on Friday.  £210 was raised to buy an Ipad for our Gambian school.

Gambia

 

We continue to have a strong link with a school called Bakau Newtown in The Gambia.  Every half term both schools send examples of their learning to one another to develop a deeper understanding of the wider world.  Over the past few years we have raised money to buy a new roof for their school, new sinks, for reading books and stationary.  There is a display in the school hall which shows examples of what recent work has been completed.
