When Jo Pope arrived in South Luangwa in 1988 she had little idea of how she would become involved with the local community. Shortly after starting work at a remote safari camp she heard about a nearby school desperately trying to survive.  Jo felt that something should be done to help and started the Kawaza School Fund with generous donations from her guests at Robin Pope Safaris.
Making a difference
Since 1988 the Kawaza School fund has started 2 community schools, supplied 20 classrooms in 7 blocks, a library, 10 teacher's houses,  5 toilet blocks, 5 boreholes, 140 desks, 9 teacher's tables, library furniture, computers and internet access, financial support sponsorship for 12 tertiary students and 57 secondary school pupils, a huge amount of educational material and planted 1129 indigenous trees.
The Kawaza School Fund and Project Luangwa
In 2010 the Kawaza School Fund was merged with the newly formed Project Luangwa. Now all four schools ijn the Nsefu Chiefdom; Kawaza and Nsefu Basic Schools and Kapita and Katapila Community Schools are supported by Project Luangwa. 
What about the future? 
Project Luangwa continues the work of the Kawaza School and if you have donated in the past would like to thank you for your kind generosity on behalf of the Nsefu Community.
