A letter from ZOA SGBIS…

11 Oct 2017
"My name is Noreen Johnson. I’m a past parent of SGBIS and both my sons Bardan and Fergus are past pupils. I teach at SGBIS City Centre and am an active member of The Zambian Orphanage Appeal (ZOA). I went on my fourth trip to Serenje, Zambia this year with a fine group of IB students and Mr Marco Gemelli leading the project.

It is always very rewarding to see the results of the committed endeavours of fundraising here at SGBIS. Year 2017 saw the completion of the guesthouse; we stayed there, it is lovely, it includes the new hammer Mill which the IB students painted and the new sports courts for basketball and volleyball.

The children are well fed, nicely clothed and making the best possible strides academically they can in the circumstances. We have one University candidate and possibly two more candidates before the end of the year.

We would like to build a Skills Centre where our practical minded pupils can learn useful skills like carpentry, tailoring, soldering, electronics and plumbing. These skills enable them to become part of the local workforce and a progressive lead from school child to young adults.

In collaboration with DRAGO LABS, CROSS THE STREETS EXHIBITION at the MACRO Rome, we are encouraging you to purchase a unique piece of art from the exhibition from JB ROCK’S Moleskin sketch book wall. 20% will be donated to ZOA."

If you have any questions please contact Ms Noreen Johnson or Mr John Talbot at St George’s.  
Thank you so much for your support.
Noreen Johnson,
ZOA  SGBIS City Centre.
