Highland Council donation to help educate children abroad

A DONATION from the Highland Council could help children abroad with their education and learning. The local authority provided a stock of math sets, which were surplus to needs, to Blythswood Care as the local authority’s organizer, Lobban said.

Councilor Bill Lobban says donation will make a difference in youth education

“I identified the stock of unused math sets that had previously been used as gifts and prizes for schoolchildren but were no longer being used. I felt they could be better used. After discussion with Councilor John Finlayson, Chairman of the Board of the Education Committee, we agreed to donate the math kits to charity. I am very happy that the Blythswood Overseas Education Program can now use the donation and I am delighted that it is making a difference in the education of many young people. “

Councilor Finlayson added: “As Highland students now have digital access for their education, we have offered math kits to young people abroad to support them in their learning. In poorer communities where children have little or no access to educational facilities, we hope that these simple math sets will make a big difference in the hands-on learning of many children. “

Blythswood’s education program aims to support education to transform the future. Blythswood Care is dedicated to sustainable education and social protection projects, helping disadvantaged children and young people to realize their potential. The association’s work takes place in some of the poorest regions of the world. They work with local partners and communities to meet educational, physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

Blythswood Project Manager Finlay Mackenzie said, “We really appreciate the advisers who are driving the math games to Blythswood. They will be useful in our after school programs which give some of Europe’s poorest children the help they need to stay in school. . “
