Get Involved

If you have been inspired by any of the work we do, then there are many ways for you to get involved and help!

Become a Sponsor

We are always in need of sponsors for children, and this is a great way to make a positive impact in individual lives. 

In sponsoring a child we will ensure regular updates from your sponsee and we will make sure they have everything they need for attending school. 

 

You can chose to sponsor a secondary student (grades 8-12) or a tertiary student to university. You can also sponsor a special needs student.

For more information please get in touch with our Sponsorship Manager here.

Donate Ufulu Pads 

Imagine missing 25% of your lessons because you are a girl  - a girl without sanitary pads. 

 

That is exactly what happens to many girls living in rural areas of Zambia who have no access to disposable pads or who are unable to afford to buy them. 

 

Project Luangwa makes washable, reusable pads in their craft workshop in Mfuwe. This project has a double impact as not only do we help girls attend school every day of the month but we provide skills training and employment to local 'less fortunate' women. 

 

Our Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) Kit contains 5 reusable sanitary pads that are guaranteed to last 2 years. It also includes our unique secret washing line that allows the pads to be discreetly and safely dried after washing and a leaflet on the use and care of the pads and guidance to Menstrual and reproductive health.

 

How it works - You buy a pack which we give out to a local school girl. We usually do this when we have enough packs for a whole class, or even a whole school. At the same time we talk to the girls about menstrual health, care of the pads and how to keep track of their periods. 

 

But does it make a difference?  One head teacher told us that since giving out pads at her school girl child attendance has increased by 85%.

 

Donate $15 today to make every day a good day at school.

Support our Craft Team

We help to support local entrepreneurs by providing training and a safe working environment for them to produce and sell craft items, bags and souvenirs. With a downturn in tourists due to Covid-19, purchasing something online can help to ensure that everyone can continue to work.

Or online store is under construction and will be coming soon. In the meantime you can purchase Ufulu pads and donate them to girls in need by emailing our Gender Support Manager here and we will see that they are given to our schools.

Start a Fundraiser or Volunteer

You can start a fundraiser for Project Luangwa by signing up at Just Giving here and posting on your own social media. It's easy and fun!

You can also help us by arranging a fundraising event in you home country. Many of our donors host dinners or organise galas with the proceeds donated to Project Luangwa. If you would like more information or help setting up your own fundraiser, email our Fundraising Manager here.

From time to time, people visiting the South Luangwa valley enjoy volunteering with the craftspeople at our shop, or working with the local schools. If you would like to help, please email us here.
