Project Luangwa is a charitable organisation, founded in 2009 and formed by the Safari Operators of South Luangwa(Zambia) as a part of their commitment to responsible tourism.
Project Luangwa has grown from an idea by Jo Pope and is managed at grass roots level by Karen Beattie and Dave Hopson.
Our aim is to create an effective, coordinated approach to helping local communities improve their long term economic prospects whilst avoiding a negative impact on the environment and wildlife.
We believe as a charity operating in Zambia that by developing and improving schools and creating training opportunities we can help families have the chance of a lasting and sustainable income.
• To increase the number of children able to attend school and have the chance of an education.
• To increase the number of classrooms and pupil places available.
• To improve educational facilities at schools in the Luangwa Valley.
• To improve the standard of education and exam pass rate.
• To increase the number of qualified teachers and standard of teaching.
• To assist vulnerable children to attend school by increasing pupil sponsorship.
• To help more gifted children fulfil their potential by gaining a tertiary education.
Vocational Training and Self Help
• To build and develop a Vocational Training Centre and train local people in vocational trades.
• To train people in the skills required to fulfil the needs of local employers.
• To enable people to develop the skills required to start and sustain their own small business.
