We have begun building a new two classroom block. The slab has been cast, bricks have been made and building is in progress. We are using builders that were trained by Build It International when the original school was built.

donata schoolWe would like to thank First National Bank Zambia for their kind donation of K4,000.00 which will go toward building the new classroom block. And thank you to Susie Burdett for initiating the connection with First National Bank.

We would also like to thank all the people who took part in the "Mkushi Amazing Race" who collected and donated funds to the school.

And thank you to the Vidmar Family for their donation that has gone towards installing a windmill to replace the hand pump on the borehole and A V Marketing and Blair McLeod for donating the water tank.

donata with building teamBuild It International, a UK-based not-for-profit assisting Zambian communities to provide low-cost community buildings, built the purpose-designed school in 2012. It followed this up in 2014 by building a house for the teachers.

Build It not only built the school, but also trained 12 local men and women in basic building skills so that the impact of this project will continue long after the last brick was put in place!

Building began late 2011 and the new school was opened in July 2012.

Watch a video: Donata will give you a tour of the school.

For more information on the project, see Donata School.

We would like to continue sponsoring other children for onward schooling at Da Gama Catholic School for disabled children in Luanshya. Our one student there Bernadett is getting on very well. Sponsorship is around US$250/ year for each child.

Children who have attended our school in the past, but whose parents have now sent them to the Government school return to play with their friends. They obviously feel happy and safe here.
