THANK YOU FOR HELPING THE AFRICAN FARMERS!

In May 2015, older students of our school were visited by a leader of a non profit organisation called Maendeleo (http://www.maendeleo.cz/index.php) which aims on support for African farmers growing rice. He delivered a presentation focused on everyday life of people living in Tanzania and explained that Maendeleo is providing small loans to individual farmers. Once they invest in their farming, improve it and manage to enlarge their profits, they pass the borrowed money to another farmer.


Students have decided to help the farmers and organized a fundraising event in our school which lasted from May till December 2015. Before Christmas, the leader of this organisation, Martin Schlossarek, has visited us again and the students of CS1 class proudly passed him nearly 6000CZK which all the children of ISO has managed to fund-raise to help farmers in Africa grow rice! !


Mr Schlossarek said: “Thank you ISO, you are amazing! Farmers in Tanzania will be so happy!”
