Hope Community School, 2015
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.
There are currently has 508 pupils, aged 6 – 19 years old, enrolled at the school. 230 boys and 278 girls
20 New Trainees
Unemployed men and women from Kanyama Compound and neighbouring Chibolya Compound were selected to join our training programme. The trainees learnt on site whilst the new building was constructed. In August 2015 they took thier nationally recognised building exams. They all passed.
