Zambian Service Tour
Here is a general description of what to expect on our trip to Livingstone, Zambia and the Mama Bakhita Cheshire Center for disabled children:
Where We Stay
Each trip is adapted to incorporate the talents and interests of the participants. Last year a musician put together a drumming program and a yoga instructor taught classes for the children at the center.
Livingstone is fairly small, friendly town with one main street through town and about 10 blocks with small stores and other businesses.
It is fairly prosperous due to the tourists coming to the Falls. It is warm in the day, high 80’s in February, and cools off at night, 60’s.
The Mama Bakhita is a lovely small compound that was originally an Indian merchant’s home. On the three acres is a small two rooms special needs school, a physiotherapy room, a water therapy room, the guest house,the main house where the four sisters live and where we eat and cook, and the chicken coop.
