During the S1 Induction days, P7 pupils learned about KIVA in Social Subjects and RE. The pupils explored the ways in which the international organisation helps people around the world by encouraging others to loan them money.

Each Social Subjects class chose someone that James Hamilton Academy could support through KIVA.

Mr Broderick's class (1W) gave money to Patrick from Kenya to buy materials to support his business.

Miss Milne's class (1DA) gave money to Daniel from Mozambique to buy materials to build a house for his family.

Mr O'Rourke's class (1B)gave money to the Kyenjojo Integrated School from Uganda to build a water filtration system to provide clean drinking water for students and teachers.

Mr Taylor's class (1M) gave money to Suzie from Lebanon to support her children's education.
