Project Luangwa

Project Luangwa (PL) supports schools and community projects in the area surrounding South Luangwa National Park in the Eastern Province of Zambia by building infrastructure, including building and filling libraries, supplying text books and E-learning tablets as well as local teachers to community schools.

We arrange school and tertiary sponsorship for orphans and vulnerable children who would otherwise be unable to attend school and encourage children and students to build a relationship with their sponsors.

In 2015 PL started a women’s craft workshop which teaches local women skills that enable them to become independent wage earners. We welcome visitors to the workshop to meet the ladies and buy their products, as well as volunteers to teach new skills.

PL encourages gender equality, runs several girls’ clubs and makes and distributes washable, reusable sanitary pads enabling post-pubescent girls to attend school every day of the month. We discovered that working with girls alone is not enough and so are in the process of starting boys clubs bring the two genders together for a better understanding.

It is important to us that we work closely with the community and listen to their opinions in all aspects of what we do – for example our gender support manager (a qualified Zambian social worker) works with the local ‘alagezi’ (village elder dealing with feminine issues) when distributing pads.
We are always happy to meet visitors to the area and to explain what we do. We can occasionally arrange for visitors to see our projects and visit some very special community schools.

You can find us next to the filling station in Mfuwe and close to the entrance to the park.
