Thousands of children in eastern Zambia got an early Christmas present thanks to a generous gift from the Lego Foundation and Plan International when nine pallets of colourful Lego was delivered to 36 remote schools in eastern Zambia.
Despite many having never seeing Lego before, the children knew exactly what to do when they saw it. They dived right in and never looked back.
said David Dalton, CEO of Plan International Ireland.
With the generous support of Child Sponsors in Ireland, we’re giving children a chance to be children. To play, to learn and have fun. That’s something very special and something to be very proud of.
We’re proud to be working with the Lego Foundation. Like us, they know the value of fun and play and want every child to experience happy times no matter their circumstances in life.
Plan International and the Lego foundation have been working together for a number of years to ensure that every child, no matter where they live, can enjoy the wonder of Lego, play and learn.
Used by Plan International staff in its partner schools and it its Temporary Learning Centres (TLCs) during emergencies, Lego is a brilliant toy and learning aid and helps keep children both stimulated and entertained.
