July 2013 Update

We do have some unfortunate news before we give the positive progress updates.  Unfortunately, one of the children died recently. Bowas was a young boy in grade 4 – about 11 years old. Zambia has one of the lowest life expectancies in the world and unfortunately childhood deaths are far too common. Our thoughts are very much with his family and friends who are trying to cope with this tragedy.

The school children have been busy in the school garden, planting tomatoes and other vegetables. It is currently the dry season so the plants need to be watered using buckets. The school has a borehole and hand pump which supplies good clean water.

Some of the school tables and benches used by the students have become damaged over the years. A programme has been started to repair them.

A trip to Livingstone is being planned for some of the children. At Livingstone there is the Victoria Falls, the Zambesi and a National Park where elephants, white rhinos, buffaloes and hippos can be seen, together with other animals and birds. This will be a very exciting trip for the children.

Examinations start in about two weeks and the necessary preparations are well under way.

I am about to leave for Zambia very soon – arriving on 11th July. I am looking forward to meeting Mrs. Sianga once again together with her students. I always find it inspiring to see how the children are progressing, to view the developments within the school and to discuss future plans. With your ongoing support  the school is able to continue to ensure that children have the chance of  better future. I am very fortunate to be able to see first hand how any funds are being spent and to understand better the issues that are faced.

I will be able to provide another report soon which should include some new photographs.
