Tukongote Community Projects created by
Waterberry Zambezi Lodge supports a number of educational projects in
our neighbouring villages. Our emphasis is on working together with these
communities to develop and improve opportunities for the local population.
Guest donations help us work towards this and are used in areas as diverse as teachers' salaries, teacher training, building materials, supplies, resources, text books and even school outings e.g. to Victoria Falls.
We started small, assisting one preschool class in 2009
and have slowly grown since. In 2017 we opened Tukongote Preschool,
a purpose built school with three bright and stimulating classrooms.
75 children aged between three and seven attend, each class having two
local teachers. In 2018 we opened our first Grade One class and each
year we will add one more Grade until 2024 when we have a full primary
school. Mid 2018 we opened the Tukongote study centre and library, stocked
with 25,000 books. This is for the entire community to use. We are running
adult literacy classes and many extracurricular activities.
