Dubai schoolkids raise Dh10,000 for needy students in Malawi

Students at a Dubai school have raised over Dh10,000 for underprivileged children in Malawi by collecting and selling old and unused books.

Pupils at The Winchester School in Jebel Ali were able to gather a total of 5,000 books and sold them in their school's annual fun fairs and parent-teacher meetings, raising a total of Dh10,240.

Their 'Winshares' initiative was launched last year, after their academic institution pledged to support a school in rural Malawi, under Dubai Cares' 'Adopt a School' programme.

A total of Dh132,000 is needed to adopt a school and offer a wide range of educational benefits to the students and teachers in Malawi.
