Chepstow are excited to be supporting such a fantastic initiative from Stand by Me. Most of us take our beds for granted but, sadly, many families in Ethiopia do not have the luxury of a comfy, warm place to sleep.
We will be putting ourselves in the shoes of the children in Ethiopia by spending a week sleeping on the floor. At the end of the week, we hope to be able to provide beds for some of the families who are not as fortunate as us.
Who will manage to raise more money, our year 7s or the Chepstow staff? Follow our school Instagram page for updates during the week.
Stand by Me are Chepstow House School's international charity partner. Stand by Me rescues kids from extreme circumstances, then does whatever it takes to provide the care, love and attention they need to thrive. We care for 3,500 kids across the world, from Myanmar to Colombia to Ethiopia. No two are the same, some are orphaned, some abandoned, some abused or living in extreme poverty, so we take care to understand and meet each of their individual needs from food and healthcare, to loving parents and quality education. We're in this for the long term, until they reach their potential, stand on their own two feet and become who they were created to be.
