The Royal Chundu Foundation School serves 54 children between the ages 4 through 6 years old. This community school currently has three grades. These children are the children of the staff and children from neighboring villages.
The school uses modern technology and students learn entire the Zambian curriculum on tablets. This gives them access to the digital universe otherwise unknown to them. During your stay with us we welcome you to meet with our pupils and teachers on a visit to the school to see the powerful work being done for yourself.

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.
Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
