The first half
We’re past the half-way point of our time in Zambia, and the Project has gone really well so far. Thanks to the generosity of staff, students, and the wider community we raised £5000 towards the priorities that the teachers of Kazemba primary had set for us, and this meant that we could:
- Buy science equipment to allow practical science to be taught
- Supply six new laptops to help the pupils learn the computer studies curriculum
- Provide new batteries to give the school electricity
- Sponsor seven children who pass their grade 9 exams to allow them to go to high school
And, of course, support the teachers in delivering lessons in Music, Science, Maths, English, Computer Studies, Social Studies and Business Studies. The whole team enjoyed working across all nine of the grades, and learned about Zambia culture and the rural lifestyle.
This short video show some of our activities during the first half of the project.
