Here’s an idea that will help communities adapt to climate change and help protect children in school - from lightning. On 18th September 2015, lightning struck Kabyuma Primary School, in Mubende District, Uganda. Five children were killed. Please read the Headmasters story and make a gift towards purchasing a lightning conductor for a Food for Thought school in Uganda which costs £200, fitted by an engineer.

Please donate either through Virgin Money Giving or by cheque payable to ‘Devon Development Education (Lightning Appeal)’ and send to Global Centre, 17 St David’s Hill, Exeter, EX4 3RG
