PaKachele Primary School
The Temwani Children's Foundation is proud to be one of the major funders of the PaKachele School, founded by Zambian Director Angela Malik and run by an amazing Zambian staff and School Board. This school provides food and education to orphaned and vulnerable children in Zambia, Africa.
Temwani and it's supporters have had the privilege of watching this school go from a dream of Ms. Malik's, to an empty plot of land, to a functioning school full of happy children and bountiful gardens. This school is still under construction, and when finished will have 7 classrooms for grades 1-7.
You can read more about the school, it's needs, and functions at our PaKachele page >>
The Kondwa Day Center
With more than 90 children ages 3-9, the Kondwa Day Center is a busy happy preschool! The Day Center provides basic education, two meals per day, and adult supervision to children and vulnerable children living in one of the most impoverished areas of Lusaka, Zambia.
The children are divided into four classrooms based on age and education level: the Baby Class, the Nursery Class, the Middle Class, and the Pre-K Class. Children who graduate from the preschool move onto PaKachele School.
The Temwani Children's Foundation supports the Kondwa Day Center by sending gifts to each child as part of the Holiday Angel Project, sending volunteers to provide training and labor as part of the Zambia Volunteer Trip.
