Bushtracks Project
Kapani School in Zambia

Bushtracks is a California-based air safari operator.During the "Africa by Air" program in February 2004, the group visited the Kapani School Project in South Luangwua, Zambia. The project was established in 1986 to educate local children who are not able to go to school. Bushtracks will be making a donation directly to the Project.

Travelers had the opportunity to contribute to the school, and by having their donations pass through Generosity in Action they received a confirmation that the donation is tax-deductible in the U.S.

Yosefe School is the flagship of the project, and currently sponsors 175 children, paying their tuition and giving them uniforms, books, pens and pencils. It has 34 students at various high schools, and 20 students have progressed to higher education, including a student who went to a teachers' training college and returned to Yosefe as a qualified teacher. The Project also teaches the children conservation awareness; and takes groups of kids into the National Park twice a month. The general attitude towards wildlife in the villages is negative, since elephants destroy crops, lions eat people or livestock, and impala antelope are just meat to eat. However due to the park visits and ongoing lectures on conservation, it is very rewarding to see the Project's efforts positively change the attitudes of these young children who may well become our game wardens of the future.

In 2006 Yosefe School reported renovations to teachers housing classroom improvements were completed. They have built more classrooms, most recently a 1x3 block of three classrooms, and will continue with the commitment of sponsorship of well over 100 children thanks to the generous donations of our guests.

The Abraham Scholarship fund founded with the incredible generosity of Bushtracks travelers continues to flourish with 20 students already sponsored into tertiary college education – teachers, nurses, accountants, mechanics and tourism courses.
