Family Project Zambia
Maranatha offers at least two family projects each year that provide service opportunities for every member of your family, both young and old. This year, join Maranatha in the country of Zambia!
Volunteers will be working at the Kabwe Adventist Primary School, about two hours northeast of Lusaka. The school currently has more than 500 students from Pre-K to Secondary, 350 of those students are in the primary school. They currently meet in a very small, crowded facility in the heart of the city. The school is well-run, but they are severely limited by space. To solve some of the problems, the school will move the primary portion of the school to a new location on the outer edge of the town on a piece of property with the new conference office.
Maranatha volunteers will be assisting with the masonry construction of the new 12-classroom school campus. In addition to the construction, there will also be outreach programs such as children’s ministry programs. And if we have medical professionals with us, we would like to provide medical outreach as well. Younger volunteers will have a chance to join the Day Camp during the project to experience different aspects of service and receive insights into daily life in Zambia!
While this project is geared towards families and preference is given to family groups, individuals are also welcome on this project.
This project will include a day-trip safari excursion and volunteers can also choose to extend their stay after the volunteer project in order to join an optional excursion to the world-famous Victoria Falls for an additional cost.Scope
