As a small charity we were blown away when approached by students from King William’s College, on the Isle of Man, saying they would like to look at the work of the Wild Frontiers Foundation as a part of the One World Charity Challenge.
The Challenge, sponsored by the H&S Davidson Trust and coordinated by the One World Centre on the Isle of Man, sets out to give Year 12 students a greater understanding of the developing world through researching the work of a charity working overseas.
They then put together a multi-media presentation, which examines the effectiveness of their chosen charity, shows cultural understanding and looks at the impact the charity has had on the life of a young person.
The students not only researched and presented the work of the Foundation, looking at the impact on the lives of the children we support through our educational projects, they raised £120 for the cause, while the H&S Davidson Trust awarded their effort with a further £750 donation to the Foundation for a job well done.
Huge thanks to the team of five students, Seth, Gemma, Lilo, Zara and Petar, for their fantastic effort in raising a total of £870.
The team has chosen to support our sponsored school in the rural village of Baleygon, in the northern mountains of Pakistan, with the funds. £870 goes a long way in raising the additional £5000 we need to continue the work we are doing for the long term sustainability of the school, its students and the local community.
