The Katulumba school in Siavonga lacks the minimal standard for teaching: three classrooms and eight latrins for more than 500 children. Despite the dedication of the teachers and the efforts of the parents, the education doesn't reach a decent standard and the lack of basic hygiene put the children’s health at risk every day.

Thanks to your generosity, this summer we could built 2 toilets (one for boys, and one for girls), as you can see on the pictures. In the next few weeks they will start digging for the septic tank, and sanitary wares will also be installed. By the next report the pupils and teachers of the school will be able to use the new toilets! 
The decision to build toilets instead of latrins (as in the project), was taken together with the PTA (Parent Teacher Association) and the Education Office (local branch of the Ministry of Education), upon this latter's suggestion. In fact, as the school has a borehole and a 5000Lt tank, having flush toilets reduces drastically the risk of epidemies and diseases.

And this is just the beginning, we are planning to build 16 more toilets, 4 new classrooms and new staff houses!

Please continue to follow us, to support and share the project among your friends.

Together, we can change the life of the Katulumba pupils and teachers.

Thanks!

Big changes begin with small steps!

The Katulumba school in Siavonga lacks the facilities to teaching its students according to basic education standards: three classrooms for more than 500 children, divided on 3 shifts/day; moreover, children’s health is every day at risk: the ratio latrines/students is 1/60 (ideal ratio is 1/15).  

The project is ambitious, though it is possible to start with the first, little step: on Global Giving, thanks to all of our generous donors, we have already collected 600€. We run few other fundraising activities, and with some Guardavanti funds we are proud to share with you the good news: today we transfered the money to the school, to build the first additional double latrine!

We know we still have a long way to collect the remaining amount, to build all the necessary facilities: new clsassroms and all the necessary additional latrins, to assure the children of the Katulumba School the basic education and the minimum sanitary standards they deserve. 

We will build the needed premises step by step. As soon as we have enough to start with a construction. Along with the next report, we will send you the photos of the new latrin, while it will be builded and when it will be finished.

Licia, Guardavanti's responsible for this project, is going to visit the Fishing Camp and the school next month, for an update of the school needs. She will share any news and new photos upon her return.

We really appreciate any further aid to continue this project: education is the pre-requisite for a better living, for escaping from poverty. 

Thanks to all of you who contributed to this first step! Please continue to follow us and to support the children of Fishing Camp!
