Partnered with Zambian Education United, Charitable Ingenuity picked up a large container of donated, American text books in Dar-Es-Salaam, Tanzania. Drove them to Zambia, where they were delivered to the hands of needy children, in remote villages.
Another large amount of text books (52,000 pounds), were collected in the US, to be packed up, shipped, and delivered to the schools and children of Zambia.
On the shores of Lake Tanganyika, children in small villages have a large hurdle. Roads are not easily accessible and traveling to their closest schools from neighboring villages proves difficult.
Using locally grown wood, Charitable Ingenuity crafted and painted yellow, 5 school boats to be used as "school buses." Improving the children's access to education.
In 2008 we built a primary school out of stones and cement. The school sets 3000 feet down at the bottom of the Great Rift Valley on the shore of Lake Tanganyika in Tongwa Village. In 2016 we built a secondary school in Tongwa.

The old saying goes – “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
Education may arguable be the most crucial of commodities. Without easy access to knowledge and education, these remote communities and villages are tragically left behind, halting any chance of progressing and increasing quality of life for the area.
Furthermore, without proper teaching and education, young men and women are unable to leave these remote village areas, which increases the amount of children continually born in remote, un-progressed villages.
Help us bring these young men and women a chance to better themselves, their communities and their families. Help us bring these remote areas knowledge of better farming, water gathering and knowledge of basic life needs – medical, hygiene, and safety.
Education can give hope and change.
