Organization Description
We are an Organization with passion for less fortunate children in Africa. Our aim is to improve the lives of children in remote areas who lack good quality education, children learning in dilapidated community schools that receive little or no support from either their local communities or outside organizations.

We improve children's learning quality by providing safe and conducive learning environments, providing learning and teaching materials, desks, sporting equipment, motivation, health care, basic necessities such as safe water and sanitation.

We mobilize community members as our local volunteers to engage them through out the project. We also have a health department which attends to children's health matters and gives sensitization to women and men of each community we get to operate from.

We are seeking volunteers of any age to assist us in improving the lives of under-privileged children. We are looking for those with building, carpentry and other related skills, teachers, youth workers or anyone with a passion for young people.

Our project is aimed at bringing education to the remotest areas of Zambia. targeting children that are far from government learning institutions. We build and renovate community schools and child care institutions in order to improve the learning quality of less fortunate children.

We are currently operating in Zambia but aiming at reaching children across Southern Africa and beyond.

I have been working from home requesting help for Building Futures on facebook. I write poetry and offer information on getting involved. I work with George Chipango through message and phone calls and have had great enjoyment in what I do.
