Lushomo School re-build 2014
Extension built 2019
Lushomo Community School was set up in 2003 by the local Headman; half the children were orphans. In May 2012 the community asked Deana for help with rebuilding, How could I say "NO" so Friends of Monze was started.
We drilled a bore hole and started building 3 classrooms.
Upon completion the school was officially handed over to the Department of Education and the PTA.
His Excellency Chief Monze attended the ceremony.
We built 4 showers at the school for girls and provided pads and menstrual hygiene training to keep girls in school.
The school has been very oversubscribed, so we provided laptops, projectors and remote learning hot spots.
In December 2018 we started building 3 new classrooms now over 600 vulnerable children attend the school.
We installed a solar powered water pump providing water for the showers, taps for hand washing and the garden.
The garden teaches the children valuable life skills to help feed them and their families an dgenerate income.
In January 2015 the walls from the old building collapsed.
The PTA borrowed a tent so lessons continued.
