The First Village Kiosk / Das erste Dorfkiosk

Farao Village has its own kiosk now.  This development will ease the lives of many villagers, as now they don't have to walk 9km to the previously nearest kiosk.  We are delighted to have finally achieved this and wish to thank all our donators.  The villagers too!

Farao Dorf hat jetzt sein eigenes Kiosk. Diese Entwicklung wird das Leben von vielen Dorfbewöhner viel einfacher machen, weil sie nicht mehr 9km zu Fuß gehen müssen, um Seife, Zahnpasta oder Waschpulver zu holen.  Wir sind sehr erfruet darüber und danken alle unseren Spender.  Die Dorfbewöhner auch!

Patenschaften / Sponsorship

We are desperately looking for sponsors.  We have 140 children going to school, but to date only 77 sponsors.  Sponsorship costs only €180 per year and you get an annual report about your child.  This helps us feed and cloth the children, and buy teaching materials for our lessons and support the maintenance of our precious school.

Grundschule Prüfening Spendenlauf / Charity Run - Primary School "Prüfening"

In May 2016, the "Prüfening" Primary School in Regensburg held a charity run in the aid of Schools for Zambia.  It was a fantastic day, and many children from grade 1-4 took part and helped raise an amazing amount of money.  Thanks Petra for making this event a reality, and thanks to the school team, who spent many hours preparing the event.
