Thank You Laurie

Laurence Cole

After being our guide and mentor
from 2002 until the completion of our registration as a charity in 2004, Laurence Cole was our constant source of knowledge as to the legal requirements needed to run the charity.

Over the last  fourteen years he has always been our "go to" when we needed advice on any strange 'things' that occurred, and encouraged us to continue with 'the dream'.

Unfortunately, like moving to 'another planet' from Wiltshire (that being Lyme Regis), health problems, and now the production of the first two of the next generation of Coles, Laurie has handed in his resignation as Trustee, and we have had to reluctantly accept his decision.

Thank you for all that you have done for Lights for Learning, and for always being at the end of the phone to listen and advise (hey, just thought, maybe we could continue with this????}

We will be forever grateful for the help and support that you have given us over the years enabling us to 'follow our dream'.

Take time out now to spoil Vivien, and more especially those little babies.

Thank you, and please keep in touch.

Return to Zambia

Lights For Learning are going back to Zambia later this month for two and a half weeks when we will be teaching the trainers how to install the lights in 3 schools.  We shall then return to the workshop and teach them how to make portable phone chargers and portable lighting systems - these will then be sold to raise funds to keep the workshop going.

Zambia: Kingsley Mwenda Centre Workshop

The re-wiring and painting is complete and we are now about to collect the kit that was left here after a previous trip.

We already have 2 people asking to be trainers and overseers when we are not here.

Now that all of this work has been completed we are heading off to the Choma area to inspect 3 or 4 schools that have been put forward to have our lighting systems fitted. We need to check they meet Lights For Learning criteria.


Lights For Learning Land in Lusaka To Set Up A Workshop

The Outside of the Training Centre
Representatives of Lights For Learning landed in Lusaka, Zambia on Thursday 4th January to be met by three members of CCZ (Council of Churches in Zambia).

They were taken to The Kingsley Mwenda Centre on the outskirts of the city where the accommodation and the building that is to become our training centre is located.

The building itself exceeded our expectations although inside it is still full as it is being used as a storage area.
