We have a successul community school in Kabwe with excellent pass rates but not all the orphans are academic so we need to give them hope through providing them with the skills to earn a living after ceasing their academic education. The Skills Block will provide a range of skills for girls and boys to enable them to be self sufficient and enjoy a good life.


Thise girls and boys dropping out of school will be offered (free) places to train ina range of skills to make them productive adults and give them hope in their lives. Initially the numbers will be small but we hope to gradually expand the range of skills and the number of places available. If successful we hope to set up a few similar projects.
