'Tis the Season!!

Fed up with the commercialism of Christmas ? Feel that you are spending out and not really getting much of the good spirit back ? Then help is at hand ! – take a little bit of time and energy during this Christmas period to help others.

As the band aid song from the 1980’s goes,

“ There won’t be snow in Africa this Christmas time,

The greatest gift they’ll ever have is life. “

Although this song referred directly to life and death, you can also take it as quality of life. At ENGLISH ALIVE ACADEMY we are giving pupils the opportunity of a life that without us will be a consistent struggle. Without an education, our pupils would be left with the prospect of sustenance farming, working as a maid or begging in the streets.

So take the time this Christmas to think of pupils at ENGLISH ALIVE ACADEMY and remember what the spirit of Christmas is all about.


There are many ways that you can help.

The following are suggestions only to get you started:

1/. Give a present to the school – a cash donation

2/. Do something to raise funds – e.g. have a dinner party where everyone makes a cash donation to attend / go carol singing / sell your unwanted Christmas presents on eBay / have a movie night where everyone makes a donation to attend etc.

3/. Sponsor a child ( please contact for further details )

4/. Approach your work organisation for workplace sponsors.

Since we will shortly be a registered charity, then this donation is TAX FREE – your employers take the money from your wage packet each month. Since it is tax free then you are e.g. giving £5 to ENGLISH ALIVE ACADEMY but in fact you are only charged £3.50 – so everyone wins !!


Funds can be paid in in various ways :

1/. Directly into the English Alive Account ( located in the UK )

HSBC bank

Account name : English Alive Academy

Sort code : 402503

Account no : 21484613

2/. Payment made to the founders of English Alive to be passed on to the school :

PayPal account name :


************ Please forward this email to as many people as you can – if everyone you know donates just £ 1 then that will be more than enough – when you have nothing every little bit counts !! ************

Don’t forget to keep up to date with the goings on at the school on the BlogSpot :
