CURRENT – This is an active project, currently accepting donations.
who you help:
You help 600 children, grades one though nine, at the Dag Hammarskjöld School in Ndola, Zambia. They need schoolbooks, computers, and other necessary school supplies.
how you help:
The first phase of this project included the purchase of English books for school children in grades three through nine. First graders received books focusing on creative technology and social development studies.
Similar to the first phase, the next phase will be based on recommendations of the District Education Board Secretary and the school principal to ensure that donations meet the needs of the students.
We hope to build on this to further help the school. Before we embark on a larger and more encompassing list, we hope to make yet another assessment visit. This way, we can include more substantial items that may require attention. In the meantime, we are in contact with the school to focus on smaller items before generating a larger list of goals.
We are partnering with the Ndola-Mukuba Rotary Club. Having collaborated with them in the past two years during trips to Zambia in a Rotary capacity, we have developed a strong bond and mutual respect. We are honored that they are willing to partner with us.
Anne-Catherine and Bob traveled to Zambia in June 2013 and August 2014. They were part of a larger Rotary team that visited schooled in the Ndola region to assess water and sanitation needs. A 2018 trip is in the works.
