We are delighted that Edgeborough School in Farnham, Surrey, are adopting Kids for Kids to support our work helping children in Darfur.
Charity founder Patricia Parker visited the school as a guest speaker last week, to tell staff and pupils about life in Darfur and how our work helps transform the lives of some of the poorest people.
“I was so impressed at Edgeborough”, said Patricia. “What an exceptional school. The children were a fabulous audience. It gives me real hope for the future when I meet young people whose questions showed not just their concern, but an enthusiasm to make a difference themselves. If only the rest of the world could follow their example! I am very much looking forward to visiting the Pre Prep on Monday 9th October to meet the little ones. “
Already the pupils, staff and Parent’s Association are making plans how they too can make a real difference.
Headmaster Dan Thornburn said about the visit “The whole school was buzzing about Kids for Kids and I know that everyone will get fully behind the cause.” Jennifer Thomas, who told the school about what we are doing to help children in Darfur, added: “The staff were really impressed particularly with how engaged the children were throughout the talk. They were really inspired and are already planning a sponsored walk based on how far children in Darfur have to walk for water.”
Thank you to everyone at the school for your enthusiasm and great feedback. We so look forward to working with you!
