Bambisanani: The First Five Years Book

“A wonderfully illustrative book. It is good to see the great work that you have been doing over the past five years in your school.”
— Paddy Ashdown, UNICEF UK President

“It really is special. It is a fantastic story of what has been achieved over the years. I am sure that we will be dipping into it for years to come for anecdotes and stories.”
— Lorraine Thomas, Corporate Sustainability HSBC

“The book showcases just how schools can bring the Global Dimension alive for all students. At a time when all schools are being encouraged to open the minds of their students to the world around them, this book is full of ideas for schools new to international development to plan the beginning of their journey as part of an international school partnership.”
— Baroness Sue Campbell CBE, Chair, Youth Sport Trust

“It was inspiring to see how the original link brokered under the project has gone from strength to strength to become embedded across both communities and make a real difference to the lives of young people in the UK and South Africa. Alongside the quotes from the young people involved in the project, what particularly impressed me was the continual emphasis on mutuality. Achieving an equitable and sustainable school partnership where both schools learn and benefit takes real commitment and effort. Both schools should be congratulated on what they have achieved over the last five years.”
— James Schone, from the British Council
