About Mulemi Community School

This is a grass-roots project on the banks of the Zambezi River, in rural Zambia. Its overall aim is to raise funds for the construction and operation of a primary school, for villages situated far from the nearest government school. Since the beginning of the project in 2007, we have managed to build two classrooms, with a storeroom, a teachers' office, and four toilets nearby. We have also sponsored four local teachers through teacher-training college in Livingstone. The aim now is to become registered with the Zambian Ministry of Education, at which point the school becomes a sustainable project, independent of donors. To qualify for registration, we must construct a specially designed Early Years classroom, three more classrooms in one building, and three houses for teachers. Additional funds are required for classroom resources, teachers' salaries, a kitchen/dining area, and professional development for the teachers.
