Story

Since September 2023 the whole school have been supporting our Zambia ’24 Project. Zambia is one of the poorest countries in the world, with about 65% of the population living on less than $2 a day. Due to HIV and Covid-19 over 50% of the population is under 15, and so we want to help poor young people in Zambia have the benefits of an education, regular meals, and a prospect of a better future, as well as helping others escape trafficking and lives on the streets.

Our aim is to raise £60,000 which will be used to provide clean water facilities and build toilets for a school in a poorer area in Lusaka, as well as providing equipment for other schools, supporting a charity working with children living on the streets and a centre providing a safe home for girls who have been trafficked. We are also sending a team of pupils and staff in Summer 2024 to visit all the projects we are supporting, to work on the new toilet block and to gain experience they will come back and share with school and our supporters. We very much hope this will inspire a long-term commitment in St Michael’s to supporting these projects and that we can revisit the projects in the future and see how our support is making a difference.
