TOUCH Ireland Mwachilenga Community School Project 2021/22
Background to the project
Child life Zambia Community School is located at 16km from Lusaka in Mwachilenga (this is a given name of the Bemba tribe, meaning: an artistic creation).
As can be seen from the photo that this is an extremely poor area and the school is not fit to educate children. However the local community are trying to help themselves to educate their children
The school has over 280 children attending which 30 are double orphans and a lot of the other children are cared for by grandparents.
We were contacted by Child Life Zambia to see if we could support them with some food for the children. As you can see from our attached video link we carried out a food programme there and we were saddened at what we encountered both with the condition of the school and the poverty of the area.
As a result we started to build them a new school in 2021. The New School will cost approx. €35,000.00.
For my Birthday on 5th February I want to try and raise funds to repair the Damaged Roof at Mwachilenga.Disaster Hits Mwachilenga School Block – Metal Girders and some Block Work Damaged!Mwachilenga Community School Project 2021 The School is located at 16km from Lusaka in Mwachilenga. This is an extremely poor area where the local community are trying to help themselves to educate their children. The new school will have over 300 children attending of which a lot are double orphans and a lot of the other children are cared for by grandparents.As can be seen from the photos there was major damage to our construction caused by a severe storm just after the New Year. The cost of repair will be just over €2,000.00. Needless to say that this was a cost we had not allowed for in these difficult fundraising times.As a result I am creating this Birthday Fundraiser with the Aim to Raise €1,000.00 of the necessary amount to get us back on track to provide a School and Education for These Children. So any donation no matter how small would help us in our efforts for these children.
