The two primary school teachers teach about 120 children in 2 classrooms under insufficient conditions. The few teaching aids and school desks are far from sufficient. Every day, the children run barefoot up to 10 km each morning and evening to reach their school.
With an immediate measure, we were able to alleviate part of the need by purchasing 10 new school desks.
Together with the village community, the parents and the teachers, further measures such as equipping additional school desks, purchasing school materials, improving hygienic conditions and necessary building repairs will be discussed, planned and implemented at the beginning of 2020.
Here is the old school building of the Lishima School. With a roof renovation, masonry repairs and the installation of a floor, the urgently needed 3rd class of the school could be accommodated here with little effort.
A fountain for the Lubanga Shabongwe Basic School in Namwala Zambia
A Collaboration with the Swiss Association for the Promotion of the Namwala Secondary School Zambia and the Board Member Johannes van der Weijden enabled the foundation "Forest Creates the Future" to realize the Projekt quickly and pragmatically. Next to the Lubanga Shabongwe Prymary School a deep well of 55 m with elevated tank and water distribution was built. The 2,150 pupils benefit from this.
