Hanover pupils Sole Galeone Carozzi and Robin Goevert, both six, show off a calendar they have created with children from Italy and Tanzania.

Drawings by youngsters from the primary school in Noel Road, Islington, have been combined with others from across the world to promote the work of The Ivo de Carneri Foundation.

The Italian foundation focuses on the control of infectious and parasitic diseases and built a public health laboratory on Pemba Island in Zanzibar, Tanzania.

Parent Giovanni Carozzi said: “The children from Hanover and two other schools illustrated with their drawings the 2011 Calendar made by the Ivo de Carneri Foundation to raise money necessary to fight malaria and improve health in poor countries.”
