children at school in Zambia

This is a community school which currently educates 260 poor children ranging in age from 5 to 12 years in seven classes. The school is located in a slum called Kapisha and the aim of the staff is to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged people. This project is a model to others of how committed people in a very poor community, with the help of western donors, can transform the prospects of the emerging generation. There are three teachers to look after 130 children in the morning and another 130 in the afternoon in only two classrooms. The project leader, who oversees the running of the school, believes that they are receiving at least as effective an education as they would receive if they could afford to attend a government school. 

The present building requires renovation.
