An afterschool club at the Academy of International Studies in Danbury are raising $1,000 to help a school in Zambia, Africa. The 38 4th and 5th graders in the Bridges of Peace & Hope Club at the Danbury magnet school are paying for playground equipment. Gaga is a softer form of dodge ball that is played in an octagonal pit generally constructed from wood. AIS has had a relationship with the African school for five years and has shared in pen pal letter writing and video exchanges. Past fundraisers have helped add two more grades to the school that now includes eighth and ninth graders.
