Ellesmere College Lower School students took part in the annual 'Monduli Green Walk' around the College this week - with some in Safari themed fancy dress!
It was a wonderful day for the pupils, who raised much needed Funds for Monduli Green and the children and students in need. Some pupils ran or walked more than five times around the 1.5km lap of the College rugby & cricket field, and golf course to not only raise awareness of the distance students have to walk to collect water every day but to raise funds for the clean water and educational projects at the school in Tanzania.
Ellesmere College has a long history of supporting the Monduli Green Project. Earlier in the year, students had already begun fundraising for the £18,000 needed to help students get a safer and better educational experience by providing four 30,000 litre water tanks and refurbish four classrooms at the Nanja School in the African nation, with over £900 raised at the College's non-uniform day.
Cathy Allen, an English as an Additional Language teacher at Ellesmere College who set up the Monduli Green Project in 2008, said: "The project works with schools and communities in Tanzania to improve the environment and facilities for children. One of our aims for the foreseeable future is to improve things at a school called Nanja. We want to build water tanks because this boarding school for 450 pupils has absolutely no water at all."
All of these ongoing projects at the College support the children and people in Nanja and huge congratulations to the Lower School pupils for completing the walk!
