Project Luangwa and the Kawaza School Fund
Kawaza School Fund has been one of the biggest successes in the Luangwa Valley and has grown from the support of one school to the current 4 schools (Kawaza, Nsefu, Kapita and Katapilla). After these 20 years of sustainable growth we found that further growth would require a dedicated management team. With full time managers far more can be achieved. RPS has joined forces with many of the lodges in South Luangwa to bring their various community projects under one roof. And so Project Luangwa was born.
Project Luangwa aims to improve the long term economic standing of the community by developing and improving education in the area. This includes raising the standards of up to 20 schools in areas of the community that have previously had little or no support. Whilst the initial emphasis of Project Luangwa work will be with schools Project Luangwa will also look at creating a vocational training centre and developing the micro-financing of small businesses.
The Kawaza School Fund is now wholly managed by Project Luangwa and still receives the same high degree of support from Robin Pope Safaris that it always has had. This means that we can only succeed with our guests continued support.
