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 the difference our support is making.

We obviously have a long way to go to enable us to make a real difference to the young people of Zambia.

A donation of any size would go a long way to helping people who unfortunately find themselves in a position much less fortunate than us. We understand that not everyone may be willing or able to support us financially, so anything in the way of raffle prizes etc would also be much appreciated.

We would love to thank you for any potential donation by also adding you to our list of sponsors who will be mentioned in all of our upcoming promotion of the project.
