Obviously a wondrously effective organisation. Small, but exquisite in every detail”

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.
Give us a High Five Hugo!

This lively, creative film clip beautifully captures the essence of their educational trip to Australia. It shows the students having fun and with boundless energy, engaging with experts in different fields of conservation, learning about scientific methods, displaying a wonder in and fascination for Australian wildlife, landscapes and the ocean, and having a genuine passion for global conservation.
This Conservation Exchange programme with Pulteney Grammar School in Adelaide shows just how valuable international links can be and how they can transform not only the lives of the students who engage in them but those of everyone else who takes part.
For these students, who have settled back incredibly well into routine life and school studies in Zambia, the real journey has only just begun…………
