1st Laindon supports school children in Africa

11 Jan 2018

1st Laindon GB group has been sending scholar packs to children in Africa.

So far the group has made up 19 packs of equipment like paper, pens, pencils, geometry sets, and calculators for the charity Tools with a Mission (TWAM).

GB Team Leader Debbie Trower says 'It's wonderful to be able to give in this way. People don't realise how lucky they are to have pens and pencils.' 

TWAM then sends the packs to school children in poor communities in African countries such as Uganda, Ghana, and Tanzania.

Debbie adds 'Together with our church and Sunday school, we make scholar packs every year.'

The group's efforts were featured in their local newspaper the Southend Standard before Christmas and were also featured in the paper in November after taking part in the London Remembrance Parade.

Debbie says 'We were all so, so, proud to take part'.

As it gives us an insight about how girls feel about a range of issues, emerging pressures and what they need to support their happiness, wellbeing and opportunities in life, it’s important that we listen to their voices.
