High School in Kashitu

Twelve elementary schools in Kashitu, 3,800 pupils and the nearest high school 40 km away. At the beginning of its existence, the local non-profit New Renato Community Society made education a priority for raising living standards in the area. Thanks to the obtained grants, cooperation with non-profit organizations from Germany, Great Britain and Italy, they built 2 kindergartens and 2 primary community schools on their own. However, gifted students usually do not get to high school. Their parents cannot afford to pay for transport and accommodation to a school tens of kilometers away. COME CHANGE IT WITH US!

I want to build with you and change the future of the children in Kashitu!

How Do We Build the School?

  •  Unburnt bricks as main construction material have a long tradition in Zambia

The functioning local community is the basis for the meaningfulness of a long-term sustainable project - ensuring the existence and administration of the high school after its establishment.

The first building has been built! 

Ceremonial opening of the workshop on 27/09/2023 in the presence of the Czech ambassador to Zambia Pavel Procházka and local political representatives

On September 27, in the presence of the Czech ambassador to Zambia, Pavel Procházka, District Commission Office of the President,  Mr Francis Hasalama, and other authorities, a new workshop was opened, which had been built in three months by Czech builders with local volunteers. Doing so, they used the new construction technology of interlocking unburnt bricks stabilized with cement. It can help local people to achieve a better quality of life. The workshop is the first building of the future high school for 250 students. For now, it will function as a training centre for this new construction technology.

200 local people, including guests, gathered for the festive event. Representatives of municipal and government officials also came. Ambassador of the Czech Republic Pavel Procházka said at the opening of the building: “We gathered here in the heart of Kashitu with great joy and pride to celebrate the result of the cooperation of Czech and Zambian volunteers, representatives of Czech Technical University in Prague and the local New Renato Community Society. The opening of this workshop marks the beginning of an ambitious project that brings a better future for the people of Kashitu.”

Support financially the second building - the multifunctional house here

Thank you!

We have it whole!

Dear and kind donors, THANK YOU!

Thanks to you and new partners, we managed to get the entire amount for the car and trailer. They are our WHOLES and will be used for the next phase of the construction of the secondary school!

Thank you! In its acquisition have participated significantly new partners among individuals (4) and the companies Sytherm s.r.o., MB Omnia Logistic s.r.o. and EkoWATT CZ s. r. o. 

Before the next stage of construction, we will lend the car and the trailer to the local organization New Renato. It will be able to use it under the condition that the profit from its use will go to the fund for the next stage of the construction of the secondary school. We will agree on the exact conditions in the second half of September, when the representatives of our association will arrive in Kashitu. 

You can still contribute to the construction of the secondary school here. Thanks to additional funds and if time permits, we could complete more than just a rough construction of the current workshop building.

The benefit sale remains in operation until 20.9., when builders in Zambia still have the opportunity to get the products. We draw your attention in particular to honey, the export of which is limited. There are currently 6 more pieces available (they will appear in the system when the internet connection from Zambia starts up).

Thank you for building with us! We appreciate it and especially the local people who build with us!

Vážení sympatizanti a dárci,

mysleli jsme, že auto budeme muset prodat, protože zpoždění cihlovaček si vyžádalo alternativní postup prací. Tím vznikly další náklady. Ale snažíme se šetřit a smlouvat, kde se dá. Stavaři aktualizovali rozpočet a spočítali jsme, že když uděláme hrubou stavbu, bude nám chybět 120.000 Kč, abychom ho nemuseli prodat za stavební materiál a mohlo projektu SŠ sloužit dál. Myslíme si, že se jedná o částku, o kterou stojí bojovat a pevně věříme, že se nám ve spolupráci s Vámi podaří částku vybrat. Potřebujeme hlavně, aby se následující informace, co nejrychleji rozšířila a oslovili jsme co největší počet lidí. S tím nám určitě můžete pomoci i Vy.

Do konce srpna shromažďujeme tedy peníze na hlavní sbírce zde. Start stav ke dni 15.sprna 2023 je zde 83.000 Kč a pokud chceme, aby auto zůstalo naše, abychom další stavební sezonu nemuseli shánět další, je potřeba, aby stav sbírky DO KONCE SRPNA ukazoval 203.000 Kč.  V opačném případě  auto prodáme a prostředky vložíme do stavby.

DĚKUJEME Vám za dosavadní podporu i sdílení této zprávy, aby se nám podařilo oslovit další dárce!
