Make a Positive Impact Through Travel

Tongabezi Trust School was born in 1996 from a desire to provide underprivileged rural Zambian children, living within walking distance of the school, with a sound and holistic education in a bid to improve the quality of their lives. Their vision is to develop the child as a whole and help them gain greater knowledge and understanding of educational and social issues, so they can make informed choices and have the chance of bright, promising futures.

Today, Tongabezi Trust School has over 280 current students and is made up of classrooms, as well as an art room, a music room and amphitheatre, sports grounds, a library, and a canteen. The children participate in a variety of extracurricular activities such as ICT, sports, music, drama, cultural dance, chess and art. Tujatane also supports over 60 children who have moved on to secondary schools all over  Zambia and many Tujatane alumni are at universities and colleges all over the world.
