Acklam Library

The next coffee morning at Acklam Library will feature a talk on a local charity helping to develop education in Africa.

The Meserani Project works to provide young people in East Africa with educational opportunities by providing equipment for schools, building new classrooms and sponsoring pupils.

The Meserani Project was set up by the pupils, staff, parents and friends of Acklam Grange School and has had a major impact on the lives of many children and families in developing areas of Kenya and Tanzania.

To date eight classrooms have been built, furnished and equipped in two primary schools in Meserani, Tanzania, and 25 pupils from these schools are currently being sponsored to attend Einoti Secondary School.

So far 62 young people from Teesside have visited East Africa at their own expense to work on the project.

The project will be the subject of a talk at Acklam Library on Tuesday, March 27 from 10.30am.

All are welcome. Refreshments available for a small donation to the charity.
