To increase the capacity of this school to offer higher learning possibilities to its pupils.
Natebe Community School is located 12km from Livingstone town in the Kangongo Village of the Natebe area. Here, a subsistence community supports the school with what they can put together to give their children an education. The school teaches from pre-school to grade 7 (14 years) and has a current enrolment of 116 students. The school however has just one classroom block with two classes.
Through a generous donation by staff of the New South Wales Land & Housing Corporation we are able to start construction of a classroom for pupils in grade 7.
2013: Launch of the Natebe Kids Club. Zambia has the 7th lowest life expectancy in the world, and just like any other sub-Saharan African country has been ravaged by HIV/AIDS with 14% of the population infected. The result has been millions of orphans that have been left behind, many living with the disease themselves. These children have to deal with situations way beyond their years often looking after parents or younger siblings and forgoing much of a childhood themselves. The Kids Club was launched to allow children the opportunity to play in a supervised and safe area. During these sessions our teams conduct informal lessons on a wide range of conservation and health topics whilst engaging with the children in fun and memorable ways. These sessions also allow us to identify children that may be struggling in their home lives and bring that to the attention of community leaders such that additional support might be provided.
