On Friday 6th November, 8 members of the ATD team flew to Zambia to meet up with representatives of the charities we support – The Butterfly Tree and Just a Drop Foundation. With them, they brought 8 huge bags filled with donations from friends, family, local Clapham businesses and staff in the office to donate to a number of schools in the Zambian countryside. Donations included books, school supplies, clothes, toys and sports equipment which are sorely needed in one of the poorest regions of the country.

The visit was also in celebration of the completion of a long-running project sponsored by ATD to bring newly built, clean and dignified bathroom facilities to these local schools. Money was raised to fund the project through various charitable endeavours of the ATD staff as well as from a commitment by CEO Oliver Brendon for the company to donate £30,000 over 3 years to the charities.
