The school and children’s home in Mafubira was established to: provide impoverished families with the opportunity to send their children to school at no cost to them; and to offer a home and an education to the community’s orphaned children. The centrally-located children’s home and school is near the clinic and the community church.
James, the headmaster, is a local Christian man who believes that education can greatly improve one’s quality of life. The schoolgrounds consist of five buildings, two of which are currently under construction.
Will all the children stay at the children’s home? Only children that are in desperate conditions will stay at the home. Lufafa will always try to locate extended family or a friend to care for vulnerable children.
