Chiyanika Village

Total Impact: 1,440

Date of Installation: January 2020

Donor: Kaner Family (Morton Williams Supermarket)

Summary: 77 kilometers from the capital city of Zambia, is Chiyanika Village. Home to 1440 community members that all rely on the same open water source. Water has always been a huge challenge for these villagers. The water is heavily contaminated, often causing waterborne illnesses. During rainy season, the women and children often injure themselves trying to obtain the water from the open source. In January of 2020, the dangers of the water were ended with the installation of a solar water pumping system and taps placed throughout the village. Now the community has access to an abundance of fresh, clean water in order to live happier, healthier lifestyles thanks to our donors of Morton Williams Supermarkets. Our local iA team has been monitoring Chiyanika Village to assess the impact of the project; already families have started growing their own vegetable gardens, and women are finally generating an income to properly tend to their families providing them with healthy and brighter futures.

Kauwe Secondary School (Special Project)

Total Impact: 180 students

Date of installation: November 2019

Donor: Jesse Menashe & Ivywake

Summary: Kauwe Secondary School is located 155 kilometers from Livingstone, Zambia. Connected to Kauwe Primary School, the building of the secondary school was an initiative taken by the community out of concern for the wellbeing of their children and to ensure their continued education. Students trying to pursue their education, were leaving home at only the ages of fourteen and fifteen, being exposed to dangerous situations, especially girls, resulting in many not completing high school. By contributing funds, Kauwe Secondary School was built and is now the only existing secondary school for over 60 kilometers. In order the school to open, the government required access to safe water for the students on site. In November 2019, Innovation: Africa, thanks to the generosity of Jesse and the Menashe Family as well as Ivywake, installed a hand pump at Kauwe Secondary School, enabling the school to officially open! In January 2020, Kauwe Secondary School opened with its first semester! In the upcoming school year, the school expect 180 students to enroll. This project will be empowering thousands of students for generations to come.
