The fundraising project that ""Cosgriff Catholic Memorial School undertook in January was a great success. Studetns, families, faculty and staff all donated money for both Chalilo and Kafinda basic schools here in Zambia. They raised a total of $1719!! This money will go towards school supplies. In March I will travel to Lusaka to buy 2000 exercise books, 1400 pencils, 1400 pens, boxes of crayons, markers, slate boards, scrabble games, and soccer balls and net balls. I can’t wait to deliver them to the schools.
We are also starting a correspondence exchange between the American and Zambia students. Student in grade 1-8 have written letters to the school children at Cosgriff elementary. We have also taken dozens and dozens of photographs of students, teachers and village life. Thank you Cosgriff!!!!!
