Gort students carve out links with Malawi

By Lorna Siggins, The Irish Times 23/12/2008

MALAWIAN WOODCARVERS have worked with south Galway transition-year students to raise funds through the sale of handmade Christmas cribs.

The first batch of cribs has already sold out, to the delight of the students from Gort Community School, Co Galway.

The stables were constructed by the students, while carvers from Liwonde in Malawi made the figurines and sent them to Ireland.
