Chitukuko Community School
We worked with displaced people at Chitukuko to help them build a new community. We trained 20 young men and women from the community and built a new 3 classroom block, teachers’ housing and latrine block.
The story of Chitukuko
The previous school was located on land that has been sold to a mining company. The classrooms were demolished and 566 households had to relocate to a government resettlement site nearby. Linda’s new school has created a focal point around which the rest of this displaced community can grow and develop.
Unemployed men and women from the resettled Chitukuko community were selected to join our training into work programme. The trainees learned on site while the new buildings were constructed and earned a nationally recognised building certificate having passed their trades test.
