Project Report | Jun 21, 2016
June 2016 Update

By Chris Barrell | HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator

I am writing this update from Zambia. I visited the project a few weeks ago and will be making another trip to Chisamba this Thursday when I will meet with Global Giving's representative.

I arrived when the students were having a short break, but there was plenty of activity at the Centre. There were 150 chickens ready to be sold – the chicken production has been the major source of income recently. Tomatoes were also almost ready to be harvested. 

There are now a number of ventures which are coming on stream. Village chickens are multiplying and soon some will be sold. The cows are currently producing 8-9 litres of milk a day, the intention is to improve the grazing and thus the yield. There are 4 piglets, a boar and a sow which will soon enable regular pig production.

The students who have been doing a tailoring course have completed. They also followed a year long course in bee-keeping – the first crop of honey is due to be harvested any day now! It is hoped to start a small production unit for the tailors who have completed the course – enabling them to start earning a little money and generate extra income for the project. They will also be given charge of bee-hives where they will be able to get some honey.

There are still big challenges meeting the ongoing costs and work is needed to improve the infrastructure – some of the buildings are in need of repair and the electrics need some work to bring them up to scratch.

Donations are needed, especially until some of the income generating activities come fully on stream.

Thank you very much for your support.
