Fundraising for Global Action Trip organisations in South Africa
As part of the Global Action Trip to South Africa, we have been fundraising for the projects we will be engaged with. The aim is that the collective impact we can make will be significant and will change lives. From the lives of endangered species as we volunteer to mend fences and repair hides in Pilanesberg National Park, under the supervision of the Rhinoceros Conservation Team, to the incredible work of Railton Foundation who support those most vulnerable in the Swellendam municipality. Their primary aim is to deliver programs which will inspire through education, sport, health care, youth development and community welfare. We will work with Adaliah Care – a temporary place of safe care for babies, specifically those who have been orphaned, abandoned or have special needs. We will produce mural artwork under the guidance of Donovan Julius and his students, collaborating on a piece the village of Suurbraak can be proud of. Ideally we can help to cover the costs of additional artwork giving local students and young people opportunities to be involved in enriching activities, whilst encouraging social cohesion.
We appreciate any support you feel able to give, either in the form of donations, or by purchasing art from the exhibition. Half of the proceeds from art sales will go to the artist and half will be donated to the trip fund. The artists include:
Donovan Julius – Khoi Artist, Activist and Art Teacher. Donovan will be joining us for Global Education Week and will also work with us in South Africa on a mural painting project.
Emma Delpech – Trip organiser, Artist, Art Teacher, Housemistress of GIH.
Georgina Low – Accompanying Staff on SA trip, Artist, Art Teacher, Resident Tutor in PG
Michael O’Reilly – Former Sevenoaks School Artist in Residence, Artist and Scenic Painter at Royal Opera House
Sabrina Shah – Former Sevenoaks School Art Teacher, Artist
Robert Cobuz - Artist and Art Technician at Sevenoaks School
Much of the work is on exhibition in the PAC until the end of November. It is available to be collected in person or by courier from Sevenoaks School. Transport and packing costs are the responsibility of the buyer.
