Magnus Scaddan wanted to do something different during his annual leave. Instead of lying on a beach he went on an extensive training course to prepare for a charity climbing expedition. His aim was to reach the summit of Mt. Blanc and this is what he told us after selecting The Butterfly Tree. ‘Your team do a great job with The Butterfly Tree and I wanted to support a smaller more targeted organisation’.
Magnus achieved his goal and raised a considerable amount of funds to provide equipment for the Science laboratory at Mukuni High School and has offered ongoing support.
The Mukuni High School, built by The Butterfly Tree in 2007, enables rural children to complete their higher education. Previously pupils had to drop out of school after year ten as they could not afford boarding fees in town schools. 2011 saw the first school leavers to go onto further education sponsored by the charity.
No matter how small raising funds can help buy essential exercises books, vital mosquito nets, go towards building community houses and classrooms for schools or to sponsor an orphan.
