Project Luangwa Update
“It’s really eye opening to realise that small things we take for granted such as cooking oil is such a luxury in some parts of the world.”
Network are proud to be sponsoring Ackim and Philimon through Project Luangwa and we were excited to get an update from Ackim this month.
Ackim visited the Project Luangwa’s office just before the start of term three. They gave him some birthday money Network had sent, half of which he used to buy some new clothes, with the rest saved for purchasing some maize, chicken and a little cooking oil at Christmas.
Ackim is really enjoying school especially with the knowledge that his tuition fees have been paid by Network. He’s been chosen as a schoolhouse captain, whose role is to help, support and mentor other students. He’s also recently attended the district and provincial level of the Nasaaz Festival, where the theme was enhancing the fight against early child marriages through the creative and performing art, with his school winning in the traditional dance, poetry and choir sections.
Ackim wants to help people when he finishes school either through nursing, or policing both well-regarded careers that could support his local community.
We’re proud to support Ackim and Philimon and look forward to more updates from them over the coming months.
