An amazing gesture for ZAP

A Moving Legacy

Two years ago, having made contact through our website, a group of young people - work colleagues - set out to climb Kilimanjaro to raise funds for ZAP.  A report of that tremendous achievement and subsequent involvement with us can be found on this link:  http://www.zanzibaraction.co.uk/news/122.html
 
The life of one of the girls, Julia Upton, was tragically cut short this September.  Her friends, at her wish, set up a fund in her name on JustGiving.  This is the link to her page which has generated a staggering sum of money for ZAP and where there are many moving tributes both to Julia and to our charity, whose work she passionately believed in.

It is difficult to put into words what this has meant to us at ZAP.  It is not simply the money, which will do so much good in our community in Zanzibar, but the realisation that the work of our small charity has inspired this amazingly generous gesture.  We feel humble, proud and grateful and we intend to spend the money on a project in the village which will last for a long time, and dedicate it to her memory.
