What is Isenge Club?
Isenge is a tiny village in Zambia. Vesilahti Lower Level Secondary School began to work with this village in 2005. We have chosen this name because it is easy to say in many languages.
This club we founded to guarantee that these interesting contacts that we have now in Zambia and Senegal will continue. We want to keep contact and also listen their needs and follow their development.
yläaste has build in those villages plenty of services based on the discussions with the local people. In Zambia a well, a primary school, houses for teachers, toilettes, sewing course for 20 women, electricity to the school, healt post, a container in
which we hope that village people will open a small shop, chicken project, and now we are providing education for a student from the village to be educated a nurse etc and in Senegal will be build this autumn a secondary school.
these pages mostly in Finnish you find plenty od material of the backgrounds of this work. There are also plenty of material in English.
The other part of the purpose of Isenge Club is to keep conctact with people who have joined to
be members of the club. Finnish citizens has a fee (20 euros/year) but at least at the beginnig foreign citizens are free of charge because they have problems in joining the activities that happen in Finland. In the future we will be found also in Latvia and
Germany having yearly some activities.
