HOHS pupils know the importance of ‘giving back’ and have nominated two charities that we will be supporting with a wide range of fundraising activities this year.

One of the charities is PLAN, a children’s charity that supports children in some of the world’s poorest areas.

Our girls and boys have raised enough money to sponsor a child and we have just received information about our child, Zoila Perez Mendez (photo) and her family.

Zoila is fourteen years old and lives in Guatemala. She currently attends secondary school and lives in a house made of adobe with a shingle roof and a cement floor.

We will be corresponding with Zoila and our pupils look forward to hearing from her and how our sponsorship is helping her and her family.
