Bosbury Raises Over £1,500 for Rwandan School!
A massive, massive thank you to all of the Bosbury School community who have managed to raise a staggering £1,582 to help support the staff at our Tara link school in Rwanda during the Covid-19 crisis.
Although the UK and many other countries around the world are continuing to struggle with the effects of the coronavirus outbreak, less economically-developed countries such as Rwanda are being hit even harder.
Emmanuel, the Headteacher of the Tara school who paid a memorable visit to Bosbury last September and his teachers are currently having to stay at home due to the lockdown which is also happening in Rwanda, and are receiving no pay like teaching staff in countries such as the UK due to the Rwandan government having no money to pay them. As a result, the staff at the Tara school are running out of food.
Fortunately however, thanks to the warm hearts and generosity of the Bosbury School community even as a country we are facing our biggest public health and economic challenge since the Second World War, we have managed to raise over 50% more than our intended target of £1,000 to help the staff at Tara, and we are delighted to announce that they have now been paid for the month of April thanks to Bosbury's help.
Thank you to the 59 people who have donated and made such a huge difference to the lives of the teachers in Rwanda. If you haven't donated yet and would like to do so, there is still time to do so by pledging money at this fundraising page by Tuesday 9th June at 10:00am.
THANK YOU AGAIN BOSBURY FRIENDS AND FAMILIES FOR YOUR AMAZING SUPPORT, AND HAPPY HALF TERM!
