St. Aidan's Church of England High School
Looking for gift ideas? Our Virtual Shop has something for everyone! Your selection could literally be life changing for one of Artizan International’s trainees. Artizan International operates in the UK, Peru and Ecuador and supports differently abled participants on a journey from visible to invisible, from isolation to community, from the margins to the centre and from unskilled to highly skilled.St Aidan’s student led fundraising organisation, Zawadi, has supported Artizan International and its forerunner, Neema Crafts since 2007. Run by successive teams of enterprising Year 11 and 6th Form students, identified by their distinctive orange hoodies, to date Zawadi have collectively raised over £40,000 for the two charities founded by Susie Hart MBE. The Zawadi team raise money by organising many different fundraising activities every year – devising and project managing events both at school and across the community. However, 2020 has not been a year for Ceilidh’s, Quiz Nights, Pop up Café’s, Christmas Market Busking or Year 7 Disco’s so the team came up with the idea of a Virtual catalogue, enabling you to buy the chance of a lifetime as a gift for a friend or loved one.Choose any of the items listed - from a Paper Making Mould or Jewellery Starter Kit to a Screen Printing Table or a Sewing Machine - every penny will enable Artizan International to buy these and many other items to support their training & social enterprise centres for people living with a wide range of disabilities.A card listing your chosen ‘gift’ will be emailed to you to print out at home, together with an accompanying information sheet describing how that item will be used and stories of some of the lives already transformed by the Artizan ‘magic’.Please help us to support Artizan so that in 2021, more people than ever receive a lifeline of opportunity – the chance to learn skills enabling them to earn a regular wage, support their families, build their self-esteem and gain the respect of their communities.
