Extracts from Expressions of Thanks

A School in Pakistan
"The new secondary school has been set up  with a laboratory but has very little equipment.  It is quite difficult to obtain locally and so this donation is wonderful.  It will be really appreciated by students and especially the science teacher who will be greatly encouraged and delighted.  We hope that these facilities and equipment will result in some students taking up the sciences when they leave school.
All these young people come from very poor homes and most have illiterate parents in low paid menial jobs.

A Primary School in Uganda
"We express our gratitude for the great contribution the science apparatus made towards our school's performance in the end of year Primary Leaving Examinations. Our children excelled in the science subject. This ranked the school number one in the whole country with a percentage pass mark of 96%. We actually accredit these good results to LabAid's contribution which made teaching easy."

A High School in Uganda
"The equipment will go a long way in improving the teaching of science in our schools. We would like to assure you that it is going to be put to the best use and there is no doubt that the performance of our students will greatly improve."

Mengo Muteesa Memorial School, Uganda
