Westhill-based specialist oil service firm ThinJack Ltd is calling on North east businesses to support an ambitious school building project in the Angolan capital, Luanda.
As well as providing cash and working to secure similar donations from fellow companies, ThinJack has managed to secure gifts of much-needed stationery for the school and director Guy Bromby is keen to hear from anyone in the area who is planning a trip to Luanda and may be able to transport some of the supplies with them.
For almost a year, ThinJack has been supporting a ground-breaking project to provide education to some of Angola’s poorest children at a school established thanks to the efforts of local man, former teacher, translator and oil worker Kisuka Baltazar.
He is gradually funding the improvement of the current school using contributions from his own salary and a small number of donations from oil and gas companies working in Angola.
ThinJack’s Guy Bromby explained: “There is a huge amount to do at the school but every single item we can get there will make a difference and getting this stationery to the staff and pupils would be a significant step in the right direction.
“We hope that companies based here in the North east who have people travelling to Angola might help by taking some of this stationery with them.”
Anyone who can help should contact Guy Bromby at firstname.lastname@example.org or call ThinJack Ltd on (01224) 330645.
