Each year Nations students take part in a once in a lifetime service trip to Zambia to work with rural primary schools in the poorest Western Province.
They live in a fully serviced outdoor education camp on the banks of the Zambezi River and work with a local NGO, the Zambezi Environmental Education Centre (ZEEC), which has two specific humanitarian goals: to educate international students about life in rural Africa and to support education in the public schools in the Western Province.
At the heart of the project is the belief that our young people have much to give and much to learn – students help students, long-term relationships grow and educational opportunities for Zambian children and Nation students are fostered.
The 2020 trip will take place over two weeks at the end of the 2019-20 school year, leaving the last week of term (during the week of the 22nd June) and returning the second week of July (week of the 6th July). The dates are tentative at this time, subject to airfare costs, safari bookings, and Zambian school logistics. Confirmed dates will be communicated in January.
A parent’s information session is planned for Wednesday 11th December 18:00 - 19:00 in Salle Rousseau, room 423. Future information sessions are also planned for early January so please watch for these. In the meantime, if you would like any further information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
