Katalumba re-visited

Category : News , zambia

In 2010 a group of 29 Scouts from Surry and Berkshire travelled to Katalumba School in Siavonga to complete the building of three classrooms in conjunction with some Zambian Scouts. It was the culmination of two years hard work, fundraising and training organised by Jools Sore from Andover. The new centre made a huge difference to the lives of the local children, who previously had to walk up to 10 km through the bush.

One of their number, Sarah, got in touch after seeing this website asking about how things are progressing. The art work on the wall still brightens up the classroom.
