Books for Nyanga High School
Teddies Maths teacher Henry Chitsenga has been delighted to receive considerable book donations from the School, and parents for the Nyanga North High School in Zimbabwe, where a project, supported by his own charity, is underway to improve and expand the school to make a it a centre of excellence for learning in rural Zimbabwe.

- Construct a classroom block ( with 2 classrooms, and a Science lab)
- Build five workshops for practical subjects (Metal Work, Woodwork, Food Science and Clothing Textiles and Design and Technology)
