Our beloved Uncle Tuta, Wellington Farao, Headman Farao Village

Unfortunately, Uncle Tuta has died.  Wellington Farao was the headman of Farao and donated so much land to our cause.  He was always behind us.  We will never forget him.
Rest in peace.

School Uniforms Feb 2015

Our pupils have received their new school uniform, and are so proud and happy.  We are delighted.  School bags donated by Schools for Zambia are also on the way.

First Lego League - Junge Hochschule Regensburg, Fundraising Event

Today, 7th February, 2015, we were invited by a college here in Regensburg to sell delicacies and cakes to raise money and awareness for Schools for Zambia.

Thank you to a former student of mine, Ms Lang, who invited us, and to all involved in making us feel welcome, as well as our customers, who enjoyed the taste of our freshly hand-baked efforts.
We raised almost €500.

Child Sponsorships

Currently, we have found sponsors for 53 or our 78 children, who are able to attend school free of charge as a result. We are always looking for new sponsors as the number of children wishing to attend our school is constantly growing.
Sponsorship costs only €180 per year and covers school fees and a uniform.  Reports will be sent to sponsors, as well as the latest photos of their child.
Please contact us at for more information.

School Garden

In order to be able to grow our own vegetables and fruit, as well as keep our own chickens and goats, we are in the process of preparing the school garden site, directly in front of Farao Community Primary School and near our canteen.

Our Employees

Since March 2014, we have been fortunate enough to be able to employ 7 villagers to work around the school area, cleaning, painting, doing general maintenance and assisting our builders by making bricks,or transporting sand or water to the site.
They are doing a great job.

School and Village Kiosk

This kiosk will be the first kiosk in the village and will make life easier for the villagers, who normally have to walk up to 9km to get to the next shop, or take a bus to Chirundu town.

In planning is also to start up a maize milling business to create employment in the village and to relieve the women from walking long distances to buy a sack of maize flour, or having to grind their maize by hand, which is very hard work and time-consuming.


Teachers' Houses Number 2 and 3

Great progress being made with our second and third teachers' houses.
