Zambian school project gets grant boost

On 25 April, the Irish Missionary Resource Service approved the grant application of Jesuit Missions for €43,000 to finish building a primary school in a Jesuit parish in the Matero township in Lusaka, Zambia.

There are many children in Matero who have not been able to attend school, thanks largely to HIV/AIDS and to general poverty. To remedy this situation, the parish and community have taken it upon themselves to construct a new school in their midst. It has already been built up to roof level (see photo), and with the IMRS grant it will be possible to finish off the project.
