New School in Zambia
Twampane Primary School is located in the Copperbelt Province of Zambia. It was built by the Chimfunshi Chimpanzee Wildlife Orphanage to serve the children of its workers and neighboring villages as the closest school is 42 km away. Chimfunshi is one of the oldest and largest chimpanzee reserves in the world and is the main source of employment for the people who live in the five neighboring villages.
Twampane Primary has made great strides in improving literacy and education for these hard working villagers. However, without higher education, these children have no hopes of ultimately becoming a part of the University system through which to gain meaningful employment.
This Spring, Children of Conservation will finalize construction of the first secondary school ever built in the villages surrounding Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage. Once complete, we hope to soon begin the high school project (with a science lab and computer room) to be followed by a home economics center, manual arts workshop and testing center. Help us make a difference! Donate towards the purchase a desk, bookshelf or chalkboard.
Donations totaling $150 or more will be recognized accordingly with engraved placards at the school. For more information, call Michele Stumpe at 404-966-6626 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
