Schools of Good Hope

In Zambia, schools are obliged to provide adequate teaching facilities and accommodation in order for the Government to send and pay trained teachers. The last year has been spent building for the future at two of our Community Schools. Thanks to the amazing generosity of their UK partner schools, Davyhulme Primary (Matimbia) and Loxford School of Science and Technology (Kafwefwe), we have been busy finishing two of our ongoing building projects.

At Matimbia Community School, we are now putting the finishing touches to the second of two teachers’ houses. By building proper houses at Matimbia Community School we have massively improved the school’s ability to retain trained teachers, ensuring that the children at Matimbia get the best quality of education available.

At Kafwefwe Community School the new classroom block means that the school can cater for more children more often. Restricted teaching space means that different age groups can only attend lessons for half a day. Finishing the “Loxford Building” increases the space available for teaching and increases the quality of that teaching, as the walls are made suitable for displaying materials that help children learn. We are delighted to have been able to play a part in making these long-term improvements, which simply wouldn’t have been possible without outside help!
