The Liberi Foundation, established in 2016, mostly focuses on education in Zambia, especially in the village Kamimbi, in the province of Siavonga. More children should have access to good education, which will provide them with better opportunities in life. Education is not only beneficial to the individual child, but also to society as a whole. A school should be a fun and safe place to visit for the children.
We are proud of the Liberi School, built with proceeds from our own private fund. The school was founded for children from the local community. The Liberi School now provides education to 228 children, and this number increases by the year!
In addition to education, healthcare is important too. This is provided by the national government and its quality can often be improved. There is one health centre in Kamimbi, the ‘Siamatika health post’. This however sadly lacks even basic necessities. The Foundation tries to improve the quality of this clinic.
Even more remains to be done. Liberi also works on:
Children at the Liberi School are given breakfast and lunch every day.
Help with education and school equipment!
We provide schools with educational books and materials for physical exercise and recreation.
A vegetable garden has been planted at the Liberi School.
For secondary education, such as training to become gardener, cook or dressmaker(coupeuse).
Classes in reading and writing are also given to adult students.
Workshops and schooling for teachers!
Teachers are trained and educated through various workshops and additional training.
Building schools and renovating schools!
Liberi, aided by Wilde Ganzen, is constantly improving the Siamatika School.
