It’s not always about the money. And when a client of mine mentioned his new charity project, helping a school in Zambia, it felt right to be involved. With branding and design work being in short supply during this lockdown, this was the perfect time to put my energy into a project that will hopefully help change people’s lives.
The website is now live – mobile friendly and responsive so locals can have easy and quick access to the school’s information.
And I’ve designed a flyer with the school’s highlights, ready for locals to read and consider. The leaflets were given out these past few days. Tim shared some messages from the school with me…
“Leaflets have been collected. Everyone delighted. They start distributing them tomorrow. (…) Leaflet distribution today. I hope this makes it feel real. Right now, 7400 miles away, your leaflets are being read by candlelight and paraffin lights in mud huts and shacks.”Tim Pain
We are also printing some stickers for their school bus and there will be a road sign for the school. It is amazingly rewarding and humbling at the same time.
To see the community so involved with the school, how the kids are understanding the opportunities that will come for them because they can get an education and to have teachers able to work in improved conditions makes me realise not just how lucky we are but also that we shouldn’t take anything for granted.
