Chibolya Community School Phase 2, 2014
A new hexagonal two classroom block to provide extra capacity at a growing community school. We also built a kitchen to provide meals for the pupils. The school was supported by Zambia Orphans of AIDS (ZOA).
The story of Chibolya
We first worked in Chibolya in 2011, completing a new two-classroom primary school building as well as a nursery building. Having expanded, the school then needed a new 1×2 classroom block.
100 more Pupils
The school previously had 228 Pupils enrolled. The new 1×2 classroom block provided an additional 100 places at the school and allowed the school to teach grades 5-9.
20 men and women from the local community were selected to join our training into work programme. The trainees learned on site and took their TEVETA bricklaying exam when their training was completed.
