Global Footprints Overseas Projects and Charities
Global Footprints are very proud to be associated with worthwhile and sustainable projects in Tanzania and Bolivia.
Our core ethos is to provide schools with sustainable and on going projects in rural communities around the world. We pride ourselves on personally sourcing the community work ourselves along with our friends in the countries we operate in. All of monies raised by students goes directly into all of our projects. Every project we undertake at Global Footprints is transparent and ethical.
Kilimanjaro Young Girls in Need is a non-profit organization based in Mabogini, one of the poorest areas in Tanzania. The extreme poverty in this rural region means that many families are forced to survive on less than $20 a month. Without the money to afford books, uniforms and transport, many children, particularly girls, will never be able to afford to attend school.
In 2012 following on from a generous gift of land from an Australian company, Global Footprints paid to have a water pump installed and hedge planted to define the boundary of what was to be the ‘new school’. This was done prior to arriving with our first teams from King Alfred’s in Wantage to start work on the first classrooms. Between the 2 teams, they completed the construction of 2 classrooms from the foundations to the roof.
In 2014 we are returned with another 2 teams from King Alfred’s in Wantage, and 2 teams from George Spencer in Nottingham, to continue building the school for this most needy and worthwhile project.
In 2015 two teams from Nottingham High, helped build a kitchen and store room to enable the cooks to work in more comfortable surroundings. They also raised money to help start building the first phase of the safe house for the children that are orphaned and have nowhere to stay.
Once the accommodation has been built, this will mean one less expense for Anna to pay out on. This is because at the moment she has to rent a house for the orphans to sleep and live in. A very costly expense.
