  • Beschreibung


    Hi! My name is Namwaka. I live in Silundu, a small village 12 km south of Mongu, Western Province, together with Godfrey my husband, my three children: Elijah(14) Elizabeth ( 15) and Lydia.(10).

    Our place is situated on a hill, surrounded by some very old Rosewood trees. Down hill there is a small stream. The area is very quiet, and in the mornings you will hear the birds singing. whilst during the nights you will be able to silently gaze at the stars.

    I am an environmentalist. There are two things I love: growing organic food, and enjoying the beauty of trees and the beautiful priceless air they provide us! Sadly, Zambia is currently suffering from a very high rate of deforestation, which is devestating human food supplies, ravaging natural habitats of animals, as well as causing further climate change. Wild fires are also a big challenge regrettably.

    We firmly believe that the key in cubbing deforestation, is held by the local communities. It’s for this reason that one of the aims of our project is to make members of our community aware of the seriousness of the deforestation that our country is undergoing, as well as the impact that climate change has.

    Next to bringing awareness, our project is working on a method of producing charcoal briquettes made from organic waste material, as an alternative for conventional charcoal that is currently being used which is one of the main drives to deforestation . If successfull, this coud be an important step in bringing deforestation to a halt.

    Foreign volunteers are welcome to my village anytime. We have thatched reed houses with an out door toilet.We do not have access to electricity but we use solar lighting. Life is fun out here! It's cool and quiet! Mongu town is about 13 km from our village, we have easy access to public transport to buy our groceries. We hope to hear from you all. I would be greatful if volunteers contributed a small amount towards the food as this would guarantee a pleasant meal for them while they are here. This will carter for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. I request a contribution so that i can provide the appropriate meal for the volunteers who sometimes need 4 meals a day due to the nature of work they do here and some volunteers prefer different types of food that we dont have at times. The amount is USD 5.00( United States Dollar). This has been permitted by Workaway.
    Thank you.

    During time off, we can visit the Sioma falls and the Victoria falls . We have a Royal palace where our King lives called " limulunga village" it's also an interesting place to visit.during the rain season, we go mushroom foraging! At night we watch the stars and mostly we have a very beautiful view of a full moon! We also tell stories around a camp fire at night! There is so much to do! There is never a dull moment. For Christian believers, we encourage one another through bible studies and singing of praise hymns.

    We have 100% internet access
