Volunteers Complete Classrooms at African Angels School

The past 4 weeks have seen two groups of ISV Impact Volunteers working with VA32 on a Community Development Initiative to help develop the facilities at the new African Angels Independent School - and this week the projects are almost complete!

(Read our previous blog Group Volunteers Aim to Make A Huge Impact on Chintsa to see the launching of the projects and what work was completed by our first group).

A huge thank you to our volunteers for their extremely hard work, fun nature and all the laughs we've had with you guys during your time here! The African Angels school is looking really great and the kids have got awesome new facilities to learn and play in - thank you :)

Our next group of volunteers arrived on Saturday 8th June and are already getting stuck in! Keep an eye on our facebook page to check out what projects they are working on and look out for the next blog about our Community Development volunteer groups.
