Unique fundraising for Zambian school
By Godfrey Olukya 24-5-2013
An international Italian charity organization has organized a unique fund-raising adventure through which it expects to raise money to construct a school in Zambia.
The fundraising has been organized by Sport2build, an Italian non-profit organization.
The adventure involves traveling from Zambia’s capital Lusaka to Florence city in Italy on a bamboo tandem. The journey will go through 13 African and two European countries.
Michael Chilwa, a member of the community in which the school is meant to be constructed said, ‘The traveling on a bamboo tandem is meant to raise funds to build a school in our village in rural Zambia. We appreciate the charity organization for coming to our aid.’
One of the founders of Sport2build, Matteo Sametti will be the one embarking on the ride with a young citizen of Zambia. The initiative is being sponsored by the Italian Embassy in Lusaka.
