Chainda Community School, 2010
The community school serves a very poor urban compound on the edge of the capital, Lusaka, and gives priority to orphans and vulnerable children.
With your support:
The school is operated by the local community with support from Zambian Open Community Schools. The school was built using our unique hexagonal ‘Cool School’ design with a connecting office and storeroom. There is an observation window between the classrooms and the office.
Build It International completed the new three-classroom block in February 2011, and the school held an opening ceremony involving hundreds of local community members. The new building received a donation of desks from Stanbic Bank. The Ministry of Education has pledged further financial support and food has been donated from the local church for school feeding programme.
A total of 8,600 individuals are benefitting from the work at Chainda School currently, with further growth expected.
