Kaliyangile VTC Zambia Update September 2018
A lot has changed since the last visit from HATW in 2017.
We are grateful that the project has once more become vibrant and full of life. The new hammer mill is helping us with livestock feed and it has cheered the community who are able to have their mealie meal at a cheaper price.
Training is well underway in Tailoring / Knitting as well as Computing now that we have five new computers. We have managed to renovate the classroom which was in poor condition thanks to HATW. We have five students in Tailoring and 7 in Computing – our one classroom can not accommodate too many. Adult Literacy is another joy to witness, as women and youths are being enabled to read and write as well as do mathematical calculations.
The Beekeepers are happy with the help they are receiving from HATW to enable training together with the team at the Forestry department. This year we are helping 22 farmers, among whom 7 are youths in Beekeeping.
All thanks to the HATW team for their support.
In order to sustain worker’s wages, we have 600 new pullets that will start laying in December. Also, the piggery has steadily grown from one to 22 now. Although this project is long term, we managed to sell 8 pigs to raise funds for feed concentrates for both layers and pigs.
We look forward to the new academic term which begins on 10th September, and thank you for your support.
