    Pleasantly Surprised
    By - Linda Wilkinson - Founder of Chikumbuso
    Every time I visit Chikumbuso I am surprised by some aspect of the project. This time it is the maturity and eagerness to learn that I see demonstrated in our students. Ten years ago, at the outset of Chikumbuso, there were 30 very bedraggled students ranging from six to ten years of age.  They were frightened by...

    Change of curriculum in Zambia
    By - Linda Wilkinson - Executive Director
    This school year the Zambian government has decided to change the curriculum for schools. Since we follow the curriculum, and since our secondary students all attend government schools, this means we have to purchase a whole new set of books for each student. This cost is quite high and unexpected but something we...

    Combining Projects
    By - Linda Wilkinson - Founder of Chikumbuso
    Dear friends,  I want to thank each one of you for your support of this project. Sending students to school well equipped makes all the difference when it comes to success. Often, if a student does not have the materials listed in his/her school curriculum the teachers will send them home until they are able to come to...

    Remember that Fourth Grade Teacher?
    By - Linda Wilkinson - Founder Chikumbuso Project
    Last night I had dinner with 10 lovely women and as I looked around the table I realized that six of the ladies I had invited were teachers. For the most part I love teachers and obviously enjoy the company of these six women in particular. One of the ladies is a fourth grade teacher which inspired each one of us in turn...

    By - Linda Wilkinson - Founder, Chikumbuso Project
    As Mishek walked along the path one morning on his way to school he came across a teenage boy crying, seemingly returning home from his school.  Mishek, curious, asked the boy what was wrong. He said that he had been turned away from takng the exams at his school for the want of a pencil and eraser. These exams are not...

    Making the Grade
    By - Linda Wilkinson - Founder Chikumbuso Project
    Had you been born in Ng'ombe, Lusaka you may have never had the pleasure of sitting at a desk. Seem surreal to you? It does to me, but it is in fact the truth. Growing up in a very nice suburb in Boston I never gave school a thought unless it was somehow to wiggle my way out getting out of my bed and going one cold wintery...

    Keeping Warm this Winter
    By - Linda Wilkinson - Founder of Chikumbuso
    As the end of summer approaches here in the Northern Hemisphere we begin to think of the winter days ahead. What will we need to keep us warm? How will we pay the fuel bills? Do all the kids have boots, mittens, and hats?  These are all questions we ask before the first snow storm surprises us.  In Zambia the...

    By - Linda Wilkinson - Founder Chikumbuso Project
      There is always something to be learned at every age about Animals in our World and this summer at Chikumbuso the students from grades K-6 are learning about the animals around them.

    A Trip to Shoprite
    By - Lisa Veitenhans - Volunteer
    Chikumbuso is an alternative type of school.  We do several things a bit differently from other schools.  We feed the kids everyday. We give out clothes generously donated and worn proudly in the place of school uniforms.  And the other thing we do is provide supplies to all the kids.  There is no way...
