Story


I’m very fortunate to be commissioned by Family Traveller magazine to explore the world with my children and to write about our experiences for their publication. The diversity and culture my children encounter on their travels has opened their eyes to the world around them and has given them real perspective on life.
Quite often they meet children less privileged than themselves, it means that they have learned to appreciate things which most take for granted - education, food, water, sanitation, clothes, a home.
Zanzibar is a stunningly beautiful, thriving island with huge tourist appeal, but like many parts of Africa there is a large percentage of children who live below the poverty line.
Most families can only afford to feed their children one meal a day and malnutrition is a major problem. 40% of the population are illiterate. Sanitation is poor and access to safe water is a daily struggle.
My daughter Jemima and I visited a local village school on our recent press trip to Zanzibar and noticed that the largest classroom sat empty, bare and un-utilised. We asked why and were told that the school lacked funds to concrete the mud floor, put in windows and to make the walls and roof safe.
To run alongside my fashion editorial in this months Hooligans magazine and the images that were taken at Langoni Primary school, Jemima has asked that we start a charity in collaboration with Hooligans Magazine to raise funds to make a safe learning environment for these children a reality. The total cost of this project is £1500
In the spirit of giving this festive season, we would like to extend the invitation to help. All funds will go directly to the school to help the project achieve its goal. To make sure the funds reach their destination it will be overseen personally by myself in collaboration with very reputable Xperience tours Zanzibar (http://xperiencetourstravel.co.tz)
Thank You and Merry Christmas.

    To each and every one of you who have donated, making a pipe dream for this community a reality. Jemima and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I will keep you all updated with progress (although I believe things happen slowly in Zanzibar and so I wouldn't expect any news in the immediate future!) but I will make it my absolute mission to make sure this money goes into the right hands and every penny is used to improve these kids lives. You have restored my faith in Humanity. W Hector, please get in touch with me at goodcampbell@mac.com
