Livingstone is committed to supporting initiatives that reflect the values of our firm. We believe that access to basic life necessities and educational opportunities are both key to self-sustainability and creating a meaningful future and should be available to everyone. That’s why through the Livingstone Foundation, we are supporting and financing education and clean water access in Africa.
We work closely with local organisations in Sub-Saharan Africa to support their educational and water access projects.
In conjunction with Project Luangwa, we have built and now maintain a rural primary school for over 500 children. We finance both teachers and innovative teaching programs and sponsor gifted children from exceptionally poor backgrounds to allow them to progress through the school system.
In order to provide careers for the children in the area we are also working closely with the Chikowa Youth Development Centre, a vocational training school. We have financed the expansion of their agricultural program expanding student numbers, but also permitting the sale of produce they grow, which brings the centre closer to being self-financed.
We are also funding the drilling of boreholes by Makolekole, a local partner firm, in remote rural areas, providing access to clean water and freeing children of the daily burden of fetching water. We continue to build a network of like-minded schools and sponsors across our countries to help continue to develop further educational and health initiatives, and to ensure that all of our projects are properly funded over time we are committed to visiting the areas we work in at least twice a year to check on progress of our projects and sponsorships, and meet with local and institutional organisations to identify new areas where we can help.
