Nine year old Valerio asked for donations instead of birthday presents and raised enough to buy serving dishes and spoons for all the children at Destiny Garden School – as this video clip shows – and there was enough left over to provide 900 school lunches! Valerio and his sister, Mirella, sponsor two children at DGS.

The spoons are going to make a huge difference and are much more hygienic; although the children wash their hands before eating it is done in a rush! The serving dishes are going to be a great help – in the past the children have had to queue outside the kitchen to get their lunch and in the rainy seasons this has been difficult.
