New bus launch


On Friday 24th May, 2019, Makeni Ecumenical Centre launched their school bus!  It was a very exciting day for both the pupils and the staff.

For a long time the Centre has been thinking about procuring a school bus to ease the transport problem the pupils face. They will now be able to participate in many inter-school activities in and around Lusaka, even outside Lusaka.

The bus was bought with the funds from the Busy Lizzies of Flanders who donated Euro 18,000, an amazing donation indeed. It is a good and beautiful bus bought from Japan.

The management and staff are very grateful to the Busy Lizzies and it is our prayer that God Almighty will bless the Busy Lizzies of Flanders and grant them good and long life.

You will see that the bus has already been branded. As this is going on the web, the bus will already have been in use, following school management having put some logistics in place.

The attached pictures show how excited everyone is about their newly acquired property.

Thank you very much Busy Lizzies!
