Hope Community School

Hope in the Chibolya Compound

We worked with partner organisation Hope Worldwide Zambia to build a new classroom block, sewing workshop and computer lab for this Community school in Lusaka. The training and construction was completed in 2015.


The school was originally built through a joint initiative between the Japanese and Zambian Governments. Hope International Zambia has been working with the school since 2009 and now teaches over 500 pupils. In 2015 Build It provided construction skills training to 20 men and women in the community. They all passed their exams.
