          LINDA COMMUNITY SCHOOL

          Located in a particularly disadvantaged area of Livingstone, Zambia, Linda area is home to Linda Community School that caters to 470 of its most vulnerable children. They are selected by the community on the basis of their vulnerability including orphaned children and others who have no means of support. Many of the children live in homes that are not weatherproof and lack running water and electricity and each day walk for over an hour to reach the school, weather permitting. Other than the headteacher’s salary, the school receives no government funding and is dependant on donors for support. The Linda Community School is delighted to partner with Okodwela in helping with the enhancement of the local community and the lives of the students and families in whom they each serve.
