Maxanaedi School
This school for OVC's (orphans and vulnerable
children) has an increasing number of pupils.
Today's count is over 600 while the number of
teachers has increased to 20. Because of the large
number of pupils, teaching is done in two sessions.

The school started in 2001 with a very simple
building (wickerwork mud walls with a grass roof)
and a kitchen and toilet facility made of local
materials. Furniture (benches, chairs, tables) have
been purchased. In 2011 construction started of a
concrete building with three classrooms and this
was completed in March 2013. Pictures of the
building process and the opening of the new
building can be seen using the links left on this
page. Meanwhile, with financial help from Zambridge and the Dutch Wild Geese foundation, a second classroom building has been constructed as well as a staff house.

In 2016 the construction of toilets for staff and pupils has been completed. These Ventilated Improved Pitlatrines have been constructed in accordance with the standards of UNICEF and the Zambian Government.
The Zambridge foundation also contributes towards the costs of food, learning materials and uniforms.

In the past Zambridge has provided the money for the formal teacher training of some of the teachers.
