Help us build a school for orphans

£849 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 12 people in 5 months
In January 2019, my family (my wife Julie and our four children) and I are planning to leave the UK to work in Kitwe, Zambia as missionaries. We plan to stay for a minimum of 18 months.
Our work in Zambia will centre around two orphanages, a street-feeding program for more than 300 children and the creation of a full primary school.

Many children in Zambia are unable to access good quality education as their families cannot afford to pay school fees or for uniform and equipment. 
Dayspring Academy will provide top class education for orphans and all children, regardless of their family’s income or circumstances.
My wife Julie, an experienced primary school teacher, will be involved in teaching in the school, and I will work on communications, fundraising and sharing these children’s stories with the world.
We will not be paid for our work in the school, the two orphanages or the street feeding program.
We need to raise money for air fares to Zambia and to pay rent, school fees for our eldest two children – there is no free state secondary education in Zambia – and for medical insurance.
We are trying to raise as much money as we can ourselves and our three-bedroom family home is currently up for sale to help us  do that.
We are very aware of the financial pressures people are under, especially at this time of year, but we would appreciate any donation, whatever the size.
Thank you so much for reading and for considering helping us.
Andrew and Julie Greenhalgh.
