Maanu Mbwami
Funsani Home

The visit includes a visit to our orphanage, Funsani Home, in Kitwe where the students will help with homework, gardening and looking after the children.

In addition, students will be volunteering in schools - Maanu Mbwami School in Livingstone and Kitwe Basic in Kitwe - in the form of teaching, gardening and minor renovation work, i.e. painting a class room.

Students are also welcomed to help out at a local agricultural farm, which has recently formed a partnership with Funsani.

Due to a strong interest from certain students, there is also an opportunity to take part in a medical work experience. There is a hospital in Kitwe with whom we have a strong relationship and they will be more than happy to accommodate any prospective medical students or volunteers.

Zambia TwentyTeen Project

 

The ‘Zambia TwentyTeen’ project is a private trip to Zambia designed for students aged 16+. We see this trip as an opportunity for the students to immerse themselves into the Zambian culture and to experience Africa’s wildlife and natural beauty.

This trip has been running since 2011 and we hope to organise another trip to Zambia this coming summer.

 

Join the Zambia Twenty Teen Trip!

 

The estimated overall costs for the trip is between £1500-£1800. We encourage the travelling students to engage in fundraising activities throughout the school year.

The students have a 3 day stay at Kiambi Camp, which is located on the Lower Zambezi, a pearl that remains undescovered. The Zambezi is the river from which Zambia gets its name.

By canooing a part of the 2,500 km river the students are able to observe animals, such as elephants, monkeys, crocodiles and hippos in their natural habitat and and get in touch with nature by camping over night on an island in the middle of the river.

Zambia is the proud host of one of the Seven World Wonders - the Victoria Falls. The students spend a day at the falls, named Mosi Oa Tunya - the Smoke That Thunders, where the are able to appreciate the picturesque beauty of the great waterfall.
