Kampinda High School
Kampinda High School, Kasama, Zambia
PEAS started operations in Zambia in 2011 opening two secondary schools in the Copperbelt. Due to a beneficial public private partnership deal (PPP) with the Zambian government that funded 90% of cost per student, the Costa Foundation were keen to invest in coffee-growing communities in Zambia. This meant that the Northern Province where the coffee is grown became the new area for PEAS Zambia’s focus.
There are two coffee farms in the Northern Province, one of which is Kasama Coffee and this is where PEAS Zambia’s third school has been built. Funded by a number of donors (Costa Foundation, SITA Foundation, Coins Foundation and OLAM Coffee) the school opened in February 2018 and was at capacity almost from day one, indeed the Costa Foundation Trustees are already looking to invest to expand this school. Quite a success story.
This is the first high school in Zambia to be fee free for day boarders which is a very exciting step change for education in Zambia and something that the Costa Foundation is very proud to be involved in.
The school is to a high spec as required by the government and includes a 4 classroom block, 3 laboratories, an ICT room, kitchen, sickbay, staff room, admin room, sanitation, water, solar power, text books and learning aids.
Officially inaugurated by all of the donors plus many local dignitaries and government representatives, the school is a genuine beacon within the community and a real success story.
