Zambia, May 2019

On Saturday the 25th May 2019 we travelled to Kasisi situated in the North Western Province of Zambia.

We are based in the capital, Lusaka so this was a very long trip, taking us 16 hours to drive there. I shared the driving with Ronald who is employed by CCZ (Council of Churches in Zambia) but he is now an integral part of our team, fully involving himself in the fitting of the lights as well.

The distance was 1200km, we arrived at our lodge at 11.30pm very tired!! The next day we drove to Kasisi School and fitted lights into 3 classrooms and a head teachers office. There were 550 pupils at this school, it was in the middle of nowhere and to get there we had to drive through sand roads which was fun - good job we had a 4 wheel drive vehicle!! We also gave out school dresses donated to us by Liz Toomer on behalf of the Sue Ryder Charity. They were given to the poorest children who were wearing little more than rags. Read more...
