GREETINGS FROM ISENGE VILLAGE ZAMBIA THE 9TH OF AUG 2016

Pellina from Isenge village phoned me on Monday evening 9.50 pm. She send her warmest thanks for the money that was send to Rachel to pay the costs of the course she has now outside the school in health posts. Pellina said that receipts will follow in due time.

At Aittacafé everyone could have seen the last receipts they send from the village and we try to remember to bring them also at the next Christmas marquet.

Pellina told us also that the money to prepare the lunch at Vesilahti Municipality School has ended. During the summer we did not succeed in collecting a lot of money at Aittacafé because staff was so occupied with the clients but I promised to inform about this problem. At the moment the account is quite empty.

MESSAGE FROM OUR MEMBER FROM ZAMBIA 30th of Aug 2015

I am a proud member of Isenge club. This club has made tremendous contribution to the education and livelihood of the rural area of Zambia.The school is called Vesilahti named after the sister school in Finland. The school project was financed by the kind people from Finland. This school is located in the village called Kafubu West farm block near Ndola. It takes roughly 40km to drive from Ndola to Vesilahti primary school in Zambia

The school has good facilities namely: electricity, water, health post, teachers houses, and toilets. This school has assisted many children who used to walk long distances to reach their government school. Now the children can spend more time in the school than spending it on walking. Education is an equalizer in life. These children will grow as responsible citizens of Zambia

Kindly pass my heart felt appreciations to the peoples of Finland.

King regards

Peter Chamfya

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.

The Vesilahden 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.

In 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.
