September 2016 Update

These have been stressful times in Zambia as the general and presidential election in August has had unexpected effects, such as bank closures, strikes, media shutdowns and general confusion. Fortunately the violence has been limited and localised and although many are unhappy with the results, the country seems now to be calming down again. Zambia historically has been a very friendly, calm and tolerant place and we hope that will hold true in future also.

Although communication has been rather limited, (Mnukwa village is in rural Eastern Zambia towards the Malawi border, and rather a long way from anywhere except Chipata), we are sending out extra equipment for the Mnukwa classrooms including knitting machines. These will be much appreciated!

The project is running well and we are now looking at upgrading a few parts of the rooms with security doors. We are also discussing the possibility of building one or two houses so students coming to the centre from the outlying villages could board Monday to Friday. We plan that these are built in 2017 and hope representatives from HANDS AROUND THE WORLD will be able to visit in the early new year.

Please watch this space for news of developments and thank you for your interest and support.
