Join Maranatha in western Zambia and work at the Liumba Adventist School, located about 15 miles outside of Kalabo. The region is very rural and located in the flood plains along the Zambezi River, and for many years the Liumba School was only accessible by boat during the rainy season. The school was founded in 1928 and currently has more than 360 students, many of whom have to walk an hour and a half each way to attend. While the school is on a large property with plenty of room to expand, most of the buildings were built in the 1920’s and 1930’s, and they are falling apart. The School is in desperate need of staff housing, bathrooms, and new classrooms in order to expand to a full secondary school.
Volunteers on this project will be building the masonry block walls for one of the buildings on the campus. Depending on the skills and interests of those who join the project, the group will also reach out into the community through activities like children’s ministry programs and health education.
Update (Jan 2021): As countries continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic regulations change regularly. At this time Maranatha is moving forward with the preparation for this project. Those planning on joining this project should go ahead and register and we will update registered volunteers if there are any changes to the status of the project.Scope
