Giving something back

Overseas charity builds

Community Colombia School - Community Colombia School
School Re-Build, La Guajira, Colombia

20 years ago a school was destroyed by the guerrilla. The teacher continued in a shack, often without pay. With great support of clients, suppliers and friends, A2O helped the children’s dream of a new school come true.

The Directors went out to a remote village in Kenya to build a new Medical Centre. People were dying of malaria because the nearest hospital was too far to get to. Now lives are being saved.
