The Livingstone Foundation continues to serve the Zambian Luangwa Valley
The Livingstone Foundation was founded in 2014 by Neil Collen, Partner and his wife Marie Gillett. Partnering with local NGO, Project Luangwa, to positively impact the Luangwa Valley via a variety of initiatives that span childhood development and education, healthcare, and access to clean water, the Foundation has made remarkable strides these last five years.
The Foundation’s first triumph was the reconstruction of a local area school (Kapita) to nearly triple the amount of students it can service to 520. In effort to expand access to continuing education, the foundation sponsors high school fees for academically-excellent students and supports the only vocational school in the area to teach competitive skills. In addition, the Foundation has also financed the excavation of several wells, facilitating access to clean water for many villages.
Most recently, the Foundation implemented an innovative math program for Kapita students and sponsored a wildlife education center that teaches children the importance of flora and wildlife around them.
Always on the lookout for new initiatives, the Foundation recently identified a new project in the building of a rural health center and new business initiatives in the area.
