Jan and Yvonne Kars’ trip report

Attached is a report from Dutch volunteers who arrived in Zambia on March 26th to spend five weeks at Makeni Centre and in the settlement villages. Jan and Yvonne Kars, along with Kerst and Griet Koopmans, had a very productive time, working with the pupils at the schools, teaching carpentry, and significantly assisting at the settlement villages in the restoration of water supplies, through the repair of no less than eight borehole pumps. In addition they left tools at settlement villages to enable the settlers to undertake their own repairs, and have given them the know-how required to do the job in future themselves. Impressive work!

Below is a selection of photos included in the report.

About Makeni Webmaster

I spent most of my youth in Makeni, growing up at the centre as it emerged from the bush, one building at a time. I now work in the UK as a lecturer in computer science.
