Obviously a wondrously effective organisation. Small, but exquisite in every detail”

We are thrilled to have just completed our 3rd community school build in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley, bringing quality education provision to more marginalised young children in Mnkhanya Chiefdom.
This build was a real team effort with funding provided by our own High Five Club members, the Luena Foundation and St Peter and St Paul Church in Shorne in Kent. Makolekole Foundation also joined hands with us to sink a borehole to provide safe, clean water at the school.

We are thrilled to bring you news of the school build project we working on last year in a remote, rural area of Malawi with our long-term community partner there the Brown Munthali Foundation.
It is amazing to see what a difference this new school has made in the community and how by joining hands together the future prospects of these children have been totally transformed. In line with our ‘hand up, not a hand out’ ethos, members of this rural community did incredible work in project managing the build and in providing key resources and materials for the school’s construction.
Here’s wishing our members and supporters a very Merry Christmas. May you be blessed and protected in 2022.

We bring you our final project update of 2021 with news of the 5 young people from wildlife areas of Zambia, Malawi and Kenya that we have extended a High Five empowering hand up to over the last year – to help them secure a brighter future and escape the cycle of poverty.
Each of their stories is very humbling and we are thrilled that we have been able to continue our support of their education this year. The children and their families are very aware that this support from the H5C comes because they live with wildlife – this having a positive knock on effect on wildlife conservation in the area. When people benefit from wildlife, they seek to protect it.
Today we bring you news of High Five Club’s support of 30 vulnerable children in rural Malawi – both in terms of food provision and emergency medical care. It is amazing what a difference our support is making to the lives of these children. There is also the knock on effect to wildlife conservation in this area too.
We hope you enjoy reading the project update.
High Five Club members are thrilled to have joined hands with our long-term community partner in Kenya SEMADEP to bring safe, clean water to over 300 of the Maasai tribe in the Masai Mara.
Water is the number one development priority across all the wildlife areas where we work in Africa, and it was particularly rewarding to implement this within a community we personally know and love.

We are thrilled that R World has chosen High Five Club as their partner to deliver development projects on the ground in Africa, starting with fund-raising to build a classroom block extension at one of our H5C community schools in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley – namely Chitenga or Chinjobvu Community Schools.
Thank you R World!
