Free from 25 Aug – 7 Sept? Then you could change lives

It’s thought that 4 out of 10 children leave school in Zambia unable to read but one organisation is dedicated to changing that, and right now they need volunteer reading assistants.

The Book Bus has been making a difference in the lives of children around Livingstone for the last ten years and its school holiday reading clubs are a huge success.

There are four places remaining on the project which runs from 25 August to 7 September. There is a fee for those who participate, but this is a project that changes the lives of all involved.

As recent volunteer Carol Williams explains: “My lasting impressions from the trip are all to do with the people. Inspirational adults have set up and run local schools in deprived areas.

“Enthusiastic children keen to learn is a bit of a cliché, but it was so true as they put their all into the work they did. The Book Bus is obviously well respected, making a real impact in Zambia. Try it and surprise yourself!”
