Building a School in Rural Zambia

ZCEI is a student organization that is working in partnership with the Temba and Julia Ndulo Foundation to construct a secondary school in Chisekesi, Zambia. Chisekesi is a small rural town found between Monze and Pemba, in the Southern Province of Zambia. The inhabitants of Choompa and Hanamaila in rural Chisekesi have no secondary school in the community.

Once completed, the project will be of immense benefit to the community. These include knowledge acquisition and improved standard of education in the area. Priority in terms of admission shall be given to children from the community. Furthermore, the presence of a high school 
will make it easy for the community to initiate income generating activities that can develop the community.
