Rob was in Tanzania a few weeks ago and travelled with Julian and Jenny, who are based in Arusha, to the Ngorongoro Highlands to visit a school near the foot of the Ngorongoro Crater. After a meeting with staff and the children, it was agreed that the Trust will support them with repairs to classrooms, blackboards and providing new books and writing materials.
The kids also requested new goalposts and netball nets – you can see in the video that the existing ones are made of logs and wire. We’ll get busy on this for them straight away. Jenny and her daughter Sasha got invited to play in a game of netball with the girls. Jenny claimed her height advantage was negated by the youth of her competitors. At least she joined in. Rob took one look at the size of the football pitch, and the steepness of the slope, and announced his retirement from all forms of the game.
We look forward to working with this lovely school and will be announcing full details over the next few weeks.
