Why we need your help


Project Summary

This project is an exciting new development. It will train 20 young unemployed men and women in building skills and construct a two laboratory science block at Linda Community School, just outside Lusaka. The science block will allow the school to offer practical lessons for the first time to Grade 8 & 9 pupils. Currently pupils do not do practical science. The project offers BGL the chance to change the lives of not just the trainees but also the lives of thousands of children, who will receive a better education.

The project will cost a minimum of £133,000.


Linda is a densely populated peri-urban township, just south of Lusaka. It has a population of around 25,000 people, living in 3,500 households. Very few residents are formally employed, with many working as farm or day labourers where they can. The area’s poverty means much of Linda has a rural feel, with dirt roads and homes built of mud bricks.

A community school was established in 1994. Despite the poverty the school has thrived and now offers both primary school (Grades 1-7) and the first two years of secondary school (Grades 8 & 9). The community are committed to seeing the school further develop and in particular the development of a science block. This will support both teaching in Grades 8 & 9 and allow the school to progress towards being registered as a Grade 9 exam centre.

Build It has assessed the site and the project is feasible. The school and local community are organised, supportive and committed. The Ministry of Education has offered to post science teachers to the school.
