Chitempha Siting of Four-Classroom Block
With the teacher housing at Chiutika School completed in April 2012, we're excited to be directing our efforts toward two projects - the sanitation blocks at Chiutika and the new classroom complex at Chitempha School! We have just begun the siting and trenching for the foundation afor Chitempha's new four-classroom block, with the laying of the foundation blocks to begin in the next two weeks.
We're also pleased to announce that SCALEAfrica Design Fellow, Charlotte Lipschitz, will be leaving for Zambia next week! She will be assisting our Project Manager, Geoff Renou, on the construction of Chitempha and the sanitation blocks at Chiutika, as well as surveying area schools to determine the site of our next project. We look forward to Charlotte's updates from the field and images of the ongoing work!
And, as we ease into summer, we are deep into the planning of our annual benefit at the Thompson LES rooftop on Thursday, August 2nd. There's an amazing silent auction in the works, as well as a performance by a very secret, very special guest! We hope you'll check back to see the progression at Chitempha and for further details on the benefit.
