TAKUNDA

Terry MacDermot  is the Head of Visual Arts at St Michael's College and he’s about to launch his first book called TAKUNDA. It is about a young African boy who lives with a disability and who is shunned by his community. With an orphaned monkey for a friend, they go on an adventure where Takunda realises his own strengths.

Through this book, Terry wants to raise awareness of disability and to raise some badly needed funds to support disabled children and their families in his homeland, Zimbabwe.

After a long absence, Terry returned to Zimbabwe a couple of years ago and got involved with ‘Sport Socialisation’ (S4S) which provides assistance to children living with disability and who are often marginalised.

Terry agreed to write and illustrate the book and it is about to be launched on 27 November at St Michael’s College, Henley Beach. The book will also be published in Europe and sold worldwide. The project is self-funded and all profits from the sales in Adelaide will go to the children living with disability in Zimbabwe.

Follow the link for your invitation to the launch and more information about the book and its amazing illustrations.
