WHERE DO WE GO?
In the past few years, we have worked in Sinazongwe on the shores of Lake Kariba down in the southern part close by the Zimbabwe border. Currently our work is in the Lusaka area and the Copper Belt to the north of this vast nation.
In the autumn of 2006, we launched our exclusive NEXGEN imprint that would identify projects for upcoming generations. Generally speaking, this would target children and young people for educational, emotional & personal needs. These projects have been very successful in provision for overtly vulnerable children, many of whom are single or double orphans. Having lost one or both of their parents, primarily though malaria or aids, they are the least of society to be positioned for an education. LUMINARY SCHOOL was the first initiative where land was purchased and a school erected for over 400 children.
We are now onto the NEXGEN Life Skills project for senior age young people. Once they have been educated to this level, many are unable to afford further education and, as a result, have to resort to less favourable options.
Please visit our Projects page for an update on this current initiative.
The newsletters below will give you an idea of what has been achieved so far through our establishing and equipping of LUMINARY SCHOOL for primary and junior students.
NEXGEN ZAMBIA 2: Phase 1 - Because of our desire and commitment to young people all over the world - hence the name of NEXGEN for all these projects - we have agreed to help another group of children in Lusaka. They are in need of a school building as the one they are renting is totally inadequate. Click the link below to learn more...
PLOT OF LAND PURCHASED & Phase 1 LUMINARY SCHOOL buildings completed! Additionally, the water well is now fully operational not only for the school, but for the local community. A huge thank you to all who donated to this, especially those who did the 'BRAVEHEART CHALLENGE' to Ben Nevis!
