Work with children’s, woman and youths
Ivor from Livingston, Zambia opened 1 year ago a community school in his home, a free school, for children which parents can’t afford to pay for government/private school.
We have started with 8 kids, now we have 38. They all study in Ivor sitting room, some of them sit on the floor because there is not enough space. The kids are from 3 years old till 11 in different levels with one teacher.
Sillar, she is a teacher with a certificate of grade 1-4. Ivor works for free and manages this school from donations and volunteers. Together, we are looking for some teachers that can come and teach the children for free from 8:00 till 12:00.
We provide education to the children’s age 5 to 14, women and youth programs for community development. We have about 40 children’s and a group of 6 woman and youths attending our home school and skills training.
We provide free dinner for our guests and that’s local meals. We are currently looking for sustainable projects ideas from our volunteers to keep us going.
We accommodate volunteers and tourists who want to experience typical local Zambian life eat local foods, test local beers and interact with this childrens, woman and youths in my community.
