Project Testimonials

This was a great project.  You could see the impact our work was having and the appreciation on everyone’s faces.  By the time we left there was a real sense of pride building in the school, this fence was just the start for them.

The work that was completed by Adventure Lifesigns and The Warwick School during the month of July was unbelievable.
They arrived ready and willing.  The Warwick students helped in the classroom with organising, tidying and assisted teachers with lessons which the children really enjoyed and the teaching staff found such a great help.
Then the students under the watchful eye of the instructors started work on building toilets, to improve health and hygiene - which were completed and work well, another great job done for the school.
At the end of their time with us in Zambia the students painted a beautiful mural on the classroom wall, which depicted their time together, and bought great colour and happiness to the area.
Our Zambian hosted thanked us when we left saying “We cannot praise the group too much as they worked wonders for us in a short space of time.”

Nepal, Summer 2014, Shree Mahendra Primary School: This summer I was lucky enough to lead an expedition with a lovely group of Students from Sutton, Surrey to Nepal. Whilst in Nepal we climbed to Annapurna Base Camp as part of our personal achievement phase and worked on a community project just outside Kathmandu. There was a team in the school before us and they dug the foundations and started to lay bricks of a wall to enclose the school, my team then came in a completed the project. Two weeks (between both teams) of solid hard work from young people who have never worked in this sort of environment, let alone with these materials and limited knowledge. It was evident and voiced that the school students, teachers and local people were thrilled with what we had done (the local people because it gave them somewhere to hang there washing over the weekend) they couldn’t have been more grateful or thankful. This project not only achieved its aims in terms of completing the school wall but in developing the UK school students and giving something back to a developing world country. The headmaster of the school sent us a thank you letter, was very grateful and would love to see students from the UK again soon.
