Durham Drama Group
Since 2013 Durham University has sent a group of students to Zambia to deliver various drama workshops and activities. The students are usually drawn from members of Durham Student Theatre, one of the largest University Theatre companies in the UK. The student teams are usually made up of between 6 and 8 students who spend their first two and a half weeks based in Livingstone working in schools, old people’s homes and an orphanage before they then move north to Lusaka where they mainly work on Sport in Action Projects.

Education Sponsorship Programme
We offer an education to those most deserving Zambian Children who may not otherwise receive the opportunity. Peer Leaders inspire and develop the young sports people in their communities physically and socially, showing unrivalled passion and commitment in the face of their own day to day challenges. For many, funding their own education is not an option. Perfect Day Foundation, with the help of Sport in Action, identify individuals that thoroughly deserve their chance to be educated at school.
For as little as £10 per month you can give:

In return we ensure you receive an update on how your child is doing at school.
