Action Aid Zambia has handed over a 1×2 classroom block to Kamininusi community in Nakonde District of Muchinga Province.

Speaking during the handover ceremony, Action Aid Country Director Pamela Chisanga said Action Aid will continue to complement government efforts in reducing poverty in the country.

Ms. Chisanga said she was happy that her organisation was handing over the classroom block as the community in Kamininusi did not have a school and children had to cover long distances to access education at the nearest school Ndingindi located over 10 km .

Ms. Chisanga however, appealed to the District Education Board Secretary (DEBS) to deploy teachers and provide furniture and other learning materials.

And Nakonde DEBS Stanley Mwambazi said he was grateful to Action Aid Zambia for assisting the people of Kamininusi in constructing a classroom block.

Mr Mwambazi said commended Action Aid for supplementing government efforts especially in the education sector and helping in curbing early marriages among the school- going children in Nakonde District.

Meanwhile, Acting Nakonde District Commissioner Kasase Mwale also commended Action Aid’s good gesture of recognising government as a partner in National development.

Mr. Mwale has since called on members of the community to guard the infrastructure jealously for the good of their children and the community.
