    June 2014 Update
    By - Chris Barrell - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    I have just returned from a two month visit to Zambia – most of which was spent at Monze. This gave me a good opportunity to meet Mrs. Sianga, the staff and students of PIZZ School and talk about the issues and progress made at the school.   It is always a delight to visit the school and see the bright happy and...

    August 2013 Update
    By - Chris Barrell - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    It was a delight to be able to spend some time at PIZZ School last month. I was impressed by the lively children I met and the dedication of the staff. I had a chance to talk to the teachers and to a number of the students. I have been visiting for many years now so many of the students recognise me and I am getting to know...

    July 2013 Update
    By - Chris Barrell - HATW Project Co-ordinator
    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...

    Celebrations are an important part of life in Zambia, as they are throughout the world. This year, thanks to a small donation from one of the HANDS AROUND THE WORLD sponsors, the school was able to enjoy a special party to mark World Youth Day. 240 of the students attended this event which was marked with lots of singing,...

    By - Chris Barrell - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    The new school year is about to begin. In Zambia they are in the middle of the Rainy Season and these days the weather is unpredictable. As in many parts of the world, now the rain, when it comes, is heavier and more persistent than usual. As yet the flooding around Monze is under control although the rain has been very...

    October 2012 Update
    By - Chris Barrell - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    Today I had a wonderful time back at school! I attended classes from grade1 to grade 7 at PIZZ school with the sole exception of grade 3 where a new teacher is awaited. I was very impressed by the way in which the lessons were conducted. The limited number of textbooks means that much of the work is done using the...

    PIZZ School April Update
    By - Chris Barrell - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    It is heartening to hear how well the students are doing despite all the difficulties they face. The school playing field is in very regular use for football games – formal and informal, with some of the local youth enjoying the facilities with the students. The girls join in the football as well as playing netball....

    PIZZ School Update
    By - Chris Barrell - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    When the news of the damaged roof was announced we received a very generous and rapid response. This enabled us to send out funds to replace the missing roofing sheets and repair the damage.  As a result the students were able to continue with their studies and take their grade 8 and grade 9 examinations. The results...

    Progress and a damaging wind
    By - Chris Barrell - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    I visited Monze this year between June and the end of August. Progress has been made during the past year particularly thanks to support through GlobalGiving and other donations linked to past volunteers. Books have been bought – particularly for grade 8 and 9 students. These books are expensive (on average...

    Disaster!
    By - David Steiner - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Chief Exec
    Dear friends,   A tornado (or something very similar) has struck Mrs. Sianga's new school! Although fortunately no-one was hurt, the damage is quite severe as you can see on the attached photos (sorry for the poor quality of the pictures), with the roof virtually all blown off. Mrs. Sianga writes: "The incident...

    Carefully spending some money
    By - Chris Barrell - HATW Link volunteer
    I talked to Mrs. Sianga about how she wanted to use the money recently received through Global Giving.  She would like to feed the children – about 1.8m Kwatcha (£240 or $387) for three months. She needs a strong room so that they can use the school as an examination centre saving the costs and disruption...

    Giving a hand
    By - David Steiner - HATW CEO
    Looking after children is never easy and all the more difficult when funds are very tight. Mrs Sianga, who has almost 500 children dependent on her and her work, is an inspiration! The recent Global Giving challenge has been a huge boost to funds to help her work and several of us plan to visit in June, partly to...
