The women of the hour!

Sikho Lovlie & Izy Callow are two names Vana Trust will never forget. These two women have accomplished what some only dream of, they have ran a marathon. They have challenged themselves to great depths and dedicated hours of their time to a charity that is humbled by their support and determination.
Izy, a fun young lady with a heart the size of Britain, ran the Milton Keynes Marathon on the 2 May 2016. She wanted to raise funds for Vana Trust Organic Farm, because she has a personal understanding of the impact this project has in its community an the people it serves. Read about her here http://mkmarathon.com/izy-callow-mk-marathon-ambassador/
Her effort paid off. Izy raised a stagering £609.24 + Gift Aid – THANKS TO YOU! And with your help, she can still stretch this outstanding mark. https://give.everydayhero.com/uk/izy

As for Sikho, this wonderful lady with a smile of gold has ran, on the 23rd April, the London Marathon 2016 in  5h 50 minutes, in what she described to have been a very emotional journey. Sikho, who told us how she knows too well the reality of thousand of children in Zimbabwe who have lots their parents to AIDS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whjAmgI6xG8 has raised £582.83 + Gift Aid for this cause. Thank you, Sikho, and THANK YOU!

You can too help raise this bar. Your support is welcome and the children we sponsor in Zimbabwe welcome your kindness too!

To the new rare breed sheep the farm will soon welcome because of Izy’s fundraiser; to the children in Zimbabwe that Sikho has heroically run for; to you for your kind donations, but most of all, to the women of the hour — Izy and Sikho!

Back to School

Dear Friends of Vana Trust

As children dear to me start back to school, I am thinking also of the Vana Trust children at St. David’s school who are also so close to my heart. As you buy school uniforms and supplies, you might also like to do the same for one of our children

Since 2004, Vana Trust has sponsored the education, provided uniforms and other supplies for children at St. David’s school in Zimbabwe affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty. We sponsor well over 100 children and the list keeps growing. We continue to support them when they leave St. David’s to go on to Sixth Form College and university. We are so proud of the exam results that the children have achieved. We also supply the school with many other necessities.

Also, the Vana Trust “breakfast club” gives over 500 children a daily hot meal. We are thrilled with the success of this venture. The children are more attentive, have gained weight and the breakfast has enticed absentee children back to school.

So please do think of donating to the Vana Trust project at St. David’s school. 100% of your donation will go to the school and here are some ideas of our projected costs.

• A year’s school fees for 1 child                                                                                £10
• A uniform, shoes & school supplies                                                                      £25
• A month of breakfasts for 1 child                                                                           £15
• A month of breakfasts for 500 children                                                          £300
• A much needed new science lab                                                                       £8000

You can donate directly at http://www.vanatrust.org.uk/. Or send a cheque payable to Vana Trust and post it to 11 Romola Road, London SE24 9BA.

Thank you so much for considering helping Vana Trust with this very worthwhile project at St. David’s School, Zimbabwe. We appreciate any help that you can give and your continued support.

And finally, I am attaching a letter from one of the Vana Trust children, Bright, with a heart warming account of his life and dreams for himself and St. David’s school. With your help we will do every thing we can to ensure that Bright can achieve his dream including sponsoring him through medical school. Children, like Bright, are the future.

With warm regards on behalf of everyone at Vana Trust

Cathryn McNaughton
CEO, Vana Trust
