A School that is part of CCAP

Mwase Day Secondary School is located in the eastern province of Zambia, near Lundazi - a remote area still being developed. The local community is made up of about 20,000 people who are mainly involved in farming and trading.  Most of the population only has a primary level of education and health facilities and schools are not readily available here.

The Mwase Day Secondary School project came out of a desperate need for high schools and out of a requirement made by the Zambian government that all primary and secondary schools be located on separate properties. The building plans came from the Ministry of Education – this is a new layout and there is only one other building like it in the whole province.

While the school is technically a “Day” school the school does offer a girls boarding option for those that come from more distant villages.  The boarding option gives parents the assurance that their girls will be cared for and safe while they attend their secondary education. Without this option may of the girls would be forced to stay home and many would be married in their mid-teen years.

EduDeo Ministries partnered with CCAP to help with funds and building support by sending multiple HANDS teams. The participation of HANDS teams on this project has further raised the local interest and desire to participate in this project. One local stated, “If these Canadians come all the way from Canada to help us with our school, then we can certainly do more as well”.

The local community organized work teams to make the bricks needed – a rather complex and tedious task. It is thought that over 100,000 bricks were made, if not more!

With the completion of the classrooms, the complex will house the secondary school administration as well as provide classroom space for approximately 200 additional high school students. Furthermore, classrooms will help reduce class sizes and the teacher-to-student ratio.

What an honour it is to partner with indigenous groups in order to offer the opportunity of quality, Christ-centred education for all children and to act as a bridge for teams from Canada to work alongside locals demonstrating God’s love for all.

I appreciate the works at Mwase High Secondary ScHool, but plan of buildings. The Secondary School should have departments. Classroom blocks should be put in proper lines/well setup
