Zambia: Education & Skills

Zambia: Education & Skills

The western province where we operate is a region with a very low education rate. The reason can be found both in extreme poverty and the poor state of individual schools. In addition, most children have to travel great distances to get to school. 


PIN operates in the Kalabo district, which has an area similar in size to the South Moravian or the Central Bohemian region but with twenty times less inhabitants and only four secondary schools. Schools are built out of clay and lack proper floors and windows; the number of desks and chairs is also inadequate. Therefore, in cooperation with the local teacher-parent association, we are helping to improve infrastructure and equip classes so that local children can have better access to a quality education.

Let´s build a school in Africa

Let´s build a school in Africa

The project is funded under the programmes Let´s Build a School in Africa and The Real Gift and its goal is to support schools in one of the poorest regions of the Western Province. Not only do local schools lack basic equipment common for European schools but staffrooms or safe sanitary facilities and toilets are a problem as well. Walls are made chiefly of clay and wooden stakes, instead of solid floor there is only mud and windows are uncovered. With the support of Ministry of Education in Zambia we have selected three primary schools in Ndoka, Namatindi and Nangumba. The classes will be equipped with necessary furniture like chairs, desks and blackboards. At the same time we will help build two classes, one staffroom and new toilets with a washbasin and access to drinking water. The whole project has been carried out in cooperation with the local Parent-Teacher Association.
