Winter Charity Appeal 2017/18

This winter season we would like to help children around the world by joining ‘Citizens of the World’ initiative, which is independently run and project managed by the founders of our school.

The focus for this winter is to collect donations to distribute to the children who attend the Murun Boarding School in rural Mongolia. Citizens of the World has been working with Murun school over the past seven (7) years. Further details on current and historic initiatives and the children can be found on facebook @CitizensoftheWorld1 also on justgiving
