|Mike Brent, a student at Leeds University in the UK, came on safari to South Luangwa some years ago and didn’t forget his time visiting the schools and community. This year he decided to raise funds to help the kids here and came up with a great idea – to sell Christmas trees at the university and donate the proceeds to Project Luangwa. He even came up with a great name for his project – Charitree.|
Mike first contacted us in October 2013 and we chatted about where funds were most needed. We explained an exciting new project to him - iSchool - and he choose this to be where his funds should be spent. iSchool is an innovative new way of teaching in primary schools using tablets known as ZeduPads.
These ZeduPads have the whole of the Zambian curriculum pre-loaded as well as lesson plans for the teachers. They are simple to use and the teachers and kids love them. We are raising funds to put iSchool into two or three schools in the area and you can find out more here on our website or on www.ischool.zm
Thank you Mike and all the students who are helping him raise funds for Project Luangwa and iSchool.
