Can You Stand Not Sitting?

In 2017, the Chalke Valley villages delivered 40 bicycles to the people of Cueibet, South Sudan to get their pastors on the move. This year, we want your help to keep their children still!

In 2013, Canon David Henley first visited Cueibet. They said they needed a church primary school. Next year there were 4 classes with about 200 children taught in the shade of four large trees. Each week, they borrowed benches from the small cathedral.

Now the school has over 900 pupils taught in two sessions a day in three mud-brick classrooms funded by Chalke Deanery. But, benches are still carried in from the cathedral. Some older children have to bring in their own plastic chairs while younger ones sit on the mud floor.

Can we stand by while they can't sit?

With your help, these children can have what ours take for granted. 

We want to give the school its own chairs and desks.

£6000 will fund 18 double desks and 69 benches

Why not give £120 for a desk, £55 for a bench or £? for a leg?

John 15: 12

'My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.'



Our Chalke Valley Lent Appeal

Donations to Can You Stand Not Sitting are still coming in. We now have an amazing total of £8,396. With contributions from others in Chalke Deanery the total is £10,906. With Gift Aid, this will be over £13,000. We can now 'upgrade' more benches to desks and provide the school with ever needed items such as text books. We have already transferred some funds to the Diocese of Cueibet as a special Easter gift. There is still time to donate -  the details are below. We could not do this without your generosity. Thank you for making a difference for the children of Cueibet Church Primary School.
