The first block for the new Kabaka school has been produced.
We undertake between 4-6 projects every year, helping to provide a better future for some of the poorest people in sub-Saharan Africa. Currently focusing our work in Zambia, we build latrines, houses, schools and health facilities.
Building work in Zambia is very different to building work in the UK. The rainy season takes place from November to April every year – meaning all building work on site needs to take place in just 5 months. So it is even more important to get things right from the very start.
Our work so far has helped build brighter futures for 125,000 people in Zambia through 19 building projects. On each of our building projects we train between 10-15 local men and women in basic building skills. This means the impact of our buildings continues long after the last brick is put in place!
We partner with organisations and local community groups. We do this to ensure we get things right and so all buildings are sustainable long after building work has finished.
We work closely with the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health in Zambia to schools and clinics so that they continue to receive support and go from strength to strength.
