Kaliyangile Zambia Update July 2023
Finishing touches to the new ablution block
After the long-awaited inspection visit by Teveta in March, the inspectors were impressed with the progress made on the ablution block. The block is now complete and includes seven showers, five toilets and hand basins. The block will improve hygiene for all students and staff, contributing to improved community health. It will enable the VTC to train more students at a time, meaning the centre will be able to have a greater impact in the community.
The beekeeping training has progressed well, with 20 students. The training covers the essentials in bee colony establishment and development, as well as the equipment, tools and materials used in beekeeping. The training also addresses key apiculture techniques and methods, such as trapping bees, capturing swarms and baiting, selecting an apiary site, honey harvesting, extraction and refinery, among other topics. The new beekeeping trainees were happy to set up the apiary right here at Kali. The beehives will be managed by the students with the hope of generating income to help themselves.
Practical lessons in computing have started with ten students on the course. They have so far covered introduction to computers, basics of MS Word, and learning typing - their performance is impressive!
We keenly look forward to tailoring training in the near future and we will bring you more news on that as it progresses.
