Building Education in Zambia
Fathers & Kids Camping partners with Mothers Without Borders to bring a brighter future for hundreds of children in Zambia.
There are over 1,000 children on the school's wait list, waiting for the opportunity to learn how to read and write.
In Zambia, there is a school that is doing wonders for orphaned children. It is called the Carol Zulu Primary School. The school is managed by a team of 100% dedicated and hard-working Zambians. The training and funding comes from Mothers Without Borders (MWB), a US-based 501(c)(3)-approved charity with audited financials. The school provides education to 450 children who would otherwise not be given a chance to learn how to read & write.
In a country where only 60% of 7th grade test scores are passing, the Carol Zulu School has maintained a 100% pass rate since opening its doors in 2010. Because of this excellent track-record, there are over 1,000 children on their waiting list.
Fathers And Kids Camping has partnered with MWB to build one of the new school wings which will consist of 4 classrooms. On April 5, 2019, a team of 18 families from Fathers And Kids Camping will travel to Lusaka and construct the 33m long new school wing with the help of a local contractor. The process involves laying 8,000 bricks which weigh as much as 22 adult elephants.
We will also install a solar power system on the roof the one of the blocks which will be subsequently able to power a computer lab as well as night classes for the parents.
During the evenings, in true camping spirit, we will be sharing stories over a camp fire and sleeping in tents under the clear sky at Casa Munji.
