  • Description


    The school was started by Alex, family and friends to help children in Muke village in Zambia grow and facilitate a quality education.

    The staff includes Alex (school Director)
    Teacher's names:

    Cookers: Auntress and Rosemary

    All the staff at the school are volunteers.

    The school currently does not have a building. We are cooking, teaching, and looking after the children outside or under a plastic sheet supported with sticks. Hopefully this will be a temporary solution until we raise enough money to build a solid structure.

    The school looks after children, our community and other surrounding areas of Muke Village. Children are suffering walking long distances to find other Schools. Your support is valued to us and the future of our children in Community.
    The closest neighboring school is a trust School that has helped us get started and provide supplies.

    Volunteers are welcome to come participate in caring for the children of the school. We kindly ask that you are respectful and appropriate when volunteering with the children.

    The Muke village is about 20 minutes' drive from Livingstone Zambia. In Livingstone there are many tourist attractions such as the beautiful Victoria Falls (one of the world's wonders).
    There are many delicious restaurants to try and open-air markets with plenty of artwork and crafts from Zambian culture.

    The Muke village is very close to the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and the Zimbabwe National Park.
    Other options are going on safari tours in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park to see wildlife such as hippos, giraffes, zebras, elephants and more. At the Victoria Falls there is bungee jumping, rafting, zipline, and many more activities.

    The Muke Village is in walking distance to the beautiful Zambezi River where you can possibly see crocodiles or hippos with the locals as a safety guide. It is possible to take a boat tour down the Zambezi River to see elephants, crocodiles, and hippos too.

    The volunteers can choose to sleep in a spacious tent or stay at the neighboring school of the trust that will provide small rooms. The neighboring trust school will provide lunch to the volunteers. Our school is still a new preschool and receives help from the nearby trust school.

    The lunch will include traditional meals such nshima (a staple food of Zambia) which is a maize-based food. Also cooked greens and meat such as goat, fish, or pork. for more questions on the lunch options please contact us.
    Since we can only afford to provide 1 meal a day, we only ask volunteers to work a maximum of 15 hours a week (2-3 hours a day, 5 days a week, with 2 full days off).
    The schedule can also be flexible if volunteers want to plan a trip to the Victoria Falls or other sight-seeing destinations.
