We are taking part in read-a-thon week at our school to raise money to support the work of Stand by Me.
From the 4 to 8 March, every page and book we read, thanks to your sponsorship, will help children from Dembi Dollo in Ethiopia who have been rescued from extreme situations.
Chepstow House School has partnered with Stand by Me for the last three years. We have learned about the program and most importantly about the children. They may have been born into different circumstances than our family, but we have found out that we have a lot in common. They like football, art and science, just like us! What they do not have is a lot of what we assume is normal things to have, like food and clothes and even school.
We want to help give these children some of the opportunities that we take for granted.
The money raised will help provide daily food, health care and education for the children in Dembi Dollo. It is transforming their futures.
