Candles for a good deed

"Side by side" in Zambia

As part of the Water Light Festival, the OEW (Organization for a Solidary World) distributes, for a voluntary donation, "wish tea candles" that will shine in the Old Town on May 24th.
In cooperation with the South Tyrolean scout association.

Chipata is a provincial capital in eastern Zambia. In 2005, a primary school was built there by Marco Sardella, Catherine Jere and Michael Chisanga. The project "side by side" is accompanied and financially supported by a volunteer group of the oew.

The project allows:
Primary education from 1st to 7th grade for 300 orphans and children from unprivileged families
Teaching by skilled teachers
Daily meals, a school uniform, school supplies and medical care
Collaboration with the caregivers of children

Care and financial support for attending a higher compulsory or professional education after graduation
