  • Description


    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, Elizabeth and Lydia, and our two dogs: Brownbomba and Sochala.

    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.

    We firmly believe that the key in stopping 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.
