Since 2005, the Scotch College community has partnered with World Vision to reconstruct and develop Kapumfi Basic School and Chitulika High School in Zambia. The transformative power of education has been clearly evident in the lives of individual students and whole communities, and is foundational to the prospects of an Africa free from the burden of unnecessary poverty.
Scotch College is now partnering with a community called Chipapa in Zambia. In this community, only 40% of children complete Primary School so working with World Vision to increase literacy in the schools and the community is our first priority. Further information about the Chipapan community can be found here: https://www.worldvision.com.au/chipapa.
This year’s Year 9 and 10 students are being given the opportunity to travel with a Scotch delegation to Zambia to visit the community of Chipapa in September 2019. While there, students will meet the World Vision Team and spend time with people of Chipapa. At the conclusion of the trip, students will be treated to a canoeing safari on the Zambezi River and a trip to Victoria Falls.
