The Liberi Foundation is an 'Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling' (Public Benefit Organisation) financed with private funds. Liberi does not have any paid workers in the Netherlands and is therefore able to use almost all funding where necessary. Liberi does, however, have paid workers for projects where necessary.
In 2018 the foundation for the construction of the Liberi School was laid. The school is built in the countryside of Siavonga in the village Namachembele on the shores of lake Kariba. The construction of the first phase consisting of: 4 fully furnished classrooms, toilet blocks, administration office, canteen and houses for the teachers has been completed. On the 14th of January the first 144 children went to school. Each class consists of 36 pupils of which 60% is female. the students live in a radius of 2 kilometers around the school.
