Zambia’s scholarship fund will be taking two trips: one at the beginning of April, to take used computers to Zambian high schools, and the other as soon as the paperwork has gone through for the shipment of textbooks.
They are looking for eight volunteers per trip. They must be willing to sleep in a sleeping bag in the bush, pay their own way and help with fuel costs once they arrive in Kasama. Volunteers will arrive at the airport in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania and ride the train to Kasama, Zambia. Once there, Theywill take several trips out into the countryside (all dirt roads) and deliver the books to tiny village schools.
