Obviously a wondrously effective organisation. Small, but exquisite in every detail”
Bill Oddie, OBE – Birdwatcher, natural history presenter and High Five Club Patron
The High Five Club continues its support this year of our school “Breakfast Clubs”, in the wildlife-rich Masai Mara in Kenya and South Luangwa in Zambia.
The provision of one nutritious meal a day means that attendance levels at these schools have soared. The children no longer miss class due to being too hungry to walk to school or in their search for food – the latter contributing to the levels of poaching in these wildlife areas.

High Five Club’s first school feeding programme is flourishing. Thank you to Eastbourne College’s ECHO charity for joining hands with H5C members from Day 1 to deliver this over the past few years. Attendance rates have improved from 60% to 99% and this rural school is now in the top 10 school’s in Zambia’s Eastern Province for its exam results. At just £3.70 to feed a child for a whole school year in 2016, this initiative is really changing lives and shows how a little goes a long, long way in Africa.
We are thrilled to share that High Five Club members have contributed towards a ground-breaking new on-the-job teacher training programme in Africa. Teach First is set to raise the bar of secondary school teaching standards in South Sudan, a country that has one of the lowest enrolment rates in secondary education in the world.

Working hand in hand with the Burundian NGO Great Lakes Outreach, High Five Club has supported Bravo Ministries with the purchase of a portable Honda generator for their sewing workshop. The new generator means that the women can produce more goods for sale, helping increase their income and enabling them to become self-sufficient and forge a new life for themselves. The generator is allowing young women and girls to be freed from prostitution now and into the future.

In recognition of the dedication and commitment of teachers at the ABATO School in Mpigi District in providing a quality education for the vulnerable children at this school, we have over the summer supported ABATO to construct 5 teacher’s houses within the grounds of the school. Each house has a bedroom and a living space, with cooking taking place in an outside communal kitchen area.
