Presentation of computers to Makale school

On the 2nd of March 2019, Sunrise Africa Relief donated some computer equipment to Makale village school in a remote district of Eastern province in Zambia.

After a three-hour drive on a dirt bush road from Petauke the Sunrise Africa Relief delegation (led by Robert Williamson one of the Trustees) finally arrived at Makale village school.

The school was constructed just after independence in 1965 and although a government school, it still depends on donations from NGO’s and charities for equipment and infrastructure.

The school had requested support in acquiring computers for the senior classes and on this occasion Sunrise Africa Relief could donate 3 computers to the school. In his address the head teacher thanked the charity for their support and said that he hoped this would be a beginning of a continuous cooperation.

Presentation of Smart TV and tablets to Barlastone Park School

On the 15th March one of the Trustees of Sunrise Africa Relief, Robert Williamson, visited Barlastone Park School in a poor suburb of the capital city of Zambia, Lusaka to present tablets and a Smart TV to the school.

The school is currently facing a lot of challenges of securing modern equipment and teaching aids and it is hoped that this donation will go towards alleviating this issue.

The school is determined to keep raising standards and to provide a sound education to the children in the area.

Mr Williamson could also meet the headteacher and the teachers and recognised the determination of the staff to overcome current obstacles. A new governing board is being put in place to broaden the appeal of the school.

Fundraising at Dunfermline Gala day

On the 23rd June 2018 three volunteers from Sunrise Africa Relief held a fundraising table at Dunfermline Gala day. Eileen, Heidrun and Robert on a very sunny day at the top of the glen raised just under £300. These funds will help support Barlastone Park School on the outskirts of Lusaka, Zambia in one of the poorest districts of the capital city. This will help towards renovation of the classrooms and books for the library.

The Trustees would like to thank the members of the public who supported the charity and gave so generously.

Update from Zambia

Our biggest project at the moment is the drilling of a water borehole at Barlastone Park School in Zambia which will provide a source of freshwater for the school. We recently managed to raise £2,300 from the Edinburgh Marathon run which is being donated to this project.

Today we have received a few photos showing the progress of the borehole and the installation of a water tank. We expect to hear more from Zambia about this important project in the future and will post updates as it progresses.
