Zambia Visit 2013: Mfuwe Secondary

Mfuwe Secondary School looked totally different when we visited this September. There had been a lot of building work carried out since 2011 and this along with a dedicated head teacher has really transformed the school.

Zambia Visit 2013: Chilongozi School

Our visit to Chilongozi school this September was truly wonderful! Mum and Dad came to see all the schools for the first time since Sausage Tree started in 2001 and they were totally overwhelmed by this school in particular.

Zambia visit 2011: Chilongozi School

Chilongozi is a real contrast to Chiwawatala; it is much smaller with only 2 classroom blocks and 6 teachers as opposed to Chiwawatala’s 16! We got there in record time this trip – three and a half hours down a single dirt track passing a few elephants on the way. Its remoteness still shocks me […]
