2021 is quickly slipping by and the ability to fly to Africa to visit our projects continues to be a challenge as the pandemic has not abated to the extent that the cost of travel and COVID protocols makes a trip viable. In the interim, we are grateful to Geoffrey Muvumbo, Project HOPE’s partner in Chipata, Zambia, who has taken on additional responsibility to care for our projects in Lusaka and Kasama. With Geoff’s help, we are able to maintain good communication and ongoing support of the Quarry School and Saikalo School.
Just last week Geoff was able to visit Lusaka and meet with Violet, our project partner at the Quarry School along with the teachers and a few key members of the community (Geoff is top left in the photo while Violet is centre, front row). This informative meeting gave Geoff the chance to see the project firsthand while also seeing the new school wall. Geoff reported back to Project HOPE: “It was great to meet Violet in person. I also was very encouraged by the progress at the school and the many orphans served there. I look forward to seeing the school develop with so much opportunity.”
There are several plans in motion to not only further upgrade the hygiene of the school’s water and sanitary system but also add to food preparation and classroom amenities. Stay tuned for more information about how you can help!
In the meantime, Project HOPE continues to support the Quarry School feeding program. If you can help with this critically important program your donation today would be much appreciated. Simply click the link on our main page “DONATE NOW” and you will be taken to our donation portal.
