We have land and planning permission, we now need the funds for the materials to eco-build our education centre, and fly the teachers out!

by Mopane Eco Centre in Livingstone, Livingstone, Zambia

On this beautiful peace of land just 10km from Victoria Falls we are building a unique new project. Situated on the elephant corridor between Zimbabwe and Zambia, we have 3 hectares ready for our classroom, permaculture garden and guest accommodation. I’ll explain more... We’re fundraising for the materials to build a cob, thatched roof education centre (which we will build ourselves with volunteers and people who will learn cob building via a workshop) and to fly the teachers for the course out. Having already applied for funding we need to ensure some money will come in on time!

Our site by the famous Victoria Falls already pulls in some tourist trade, and we benefit from our sister company Munga Eco Lodge having beautiful rammed earth chalets for your stay. We benefit from a great on site restaurant and reed filtered swimming pool, and regular live music evenings. 

We’ve already registered as a business and have five dedicated partners working on this project. 

We come from different backgrounds; a medical doctor, an accountant, a holistic therapist and teacher, a wildlife expert guide, and an administration guru. All united in 5e belief that we can make the world a better place for those who want a great holiday as well as for those who want to start their own businesses after a course with us. 

Our main focus is to provide lovely retreats and classes for people who want to come and experience this beautiful part of the world, to learn about sustainability and eco build techniques, to practise developing their own small holding or permaculture garden, and to encourage locals (especially women) to learn skills for better employment and lifestyle quality. This is the culmination of the passion and learning of the five of us, made reality.

Thank you for your support! WE CANNOT DO THIS WITHOUT YOU!
