1 Learning about and helping schools in Africa Bea, Mack & Tom Ottway

2 Tom & Bea talking at St Luke’s

3 SUMMARY  As a family, we recently went to The Gambia, where we visited a typical village school and saw the challenges they are facing: lack of materials, even pencils and paper, and trained teachers; education is not free.  Tom is volunteering in August in Uganda for the Great Generation charity to help train local primary teachers, helping setting up a teacher forum, which will benefit up to 10,000 students in the coming years.  Tom, Bea and Mack are raising money for the project and need St Lukes children and parents’ help to get to the £1500 total, please!
