The Mutende Children’s Village near Chingola, Zambia offers opportunities for orphans and abandoned children to be cared for in a loving, family environment. In summer 2013, along with a team of ten volunteers, we designed and constructed a large hall space, which can be divided into three classrooms plus an office and IT suite, for the Mutende's Harold Mwenge Memorial Academy. Built in only 7 weeks, this 350m² structure cost only £100/m² and will more than double the existing study space and enable the school to provide education for significantly more children in the local area.
