Why we need your help

The Zambian Connection

Sponsoring Disadvantaged Children 

In July 2018 I am taking a small group of people to Zambia to take part in a sponsored canoe trip down the Zambezi river. It will be an amazing adventure where we will be taking 4 days to canoe from the Kafue River to the Lower Zambezi National Park.

Zambian Children

We are raising funds for disadvantaged and orphaned children living in the Chiawa region of Zambia, which is a rural and remote area where children only have access to secondary education if they have funds to pay for it. There are many bright, aspiring children that we are committed to help in collaboration with the conservation unit in the Lower Zambezi (Conservation Lower Zambezi – CLZ), who will run the sponsorship programme on the ground. This project tallies nicely with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which inspired me a couple of years ago, when I acknowledged that anyone and everyone can make a difference, even me, and that the accumulative effect would build.

Children are chosen on merit and have to be a member of the school conservation club.  They sign a ‘contract’ to commit to their education and their progress is monitored and tracked working closely with the committed team at CLZ to protect the future of this

Kafue River

In 2018 we will be also be a group of young people over to run a project and take out much needed equipment.

 I am also working on getting a big sponsor so that we can build a dormitory for Gota Gota school, so that the children have somewhere safe to sleep.
