Jama Charity Fund


Donations raised so far: $1064.00

** Update! ** 

Michael Cracknell, the Secretary General of Enda, has told us that a small Enda team has visited the village of Jama and discussed with local men and women what sort of project they'd like us to fund.  The consensus was that our funds would be best used to renovate the school, which caters for eighty children aged six to twelve in several classes.  The school needs repainting, washrooms and some minor refurbishments.  Enda will keep us posted.  Watch this space.  If you can, please donate!

About the authors

Danny, Ben and Sam Wood are three brothers who followed in the footsteps of three ancient Carthaginian brothers Hannibal, Hasdrubal and Mago. They cycled from Cartagena, Spain to Zama, Tunisia - the route that Hannibal and his army took over 2200 years ago. Along the way they filmed a documentary which was aired on BBC4 in July and August 2010.
