Our organization built the Happy Bricks Primary School in 2015 to provide 120 children
from Lukwambe with education. Before, going to school meant walking about 17 km to
the nearest school. Due to the immense distance most
children could not attend school at all. Well, that´s in
the past now! With the happy help of the Happy Bricks
Foundation in the UK we built the first primary school
in Lukwambe village, consisting of three classrooms,
toilets, since 2017 a school kitchen and since 2018 a
house for teachers. Two governmental teachers and
our school attendant currently work at our school.
In addition to the regular curriculum our school is keen to spread ecological awareness and
teach more about nature's conservation. An example is planting trees and conveying their
importance for all life.
We have achieved a lot already, but in order to
comply with governmental educational guidelines,
further work is required. We need to add four class
rooms, seperated toilets for students and teachers
as well as a staff room. Additionally each class
should be provided with their own teacher.
Currently, we are running two important projects at the school.
