We will create a meaningful project based on sustainable solutions. Driven by this aspiration, we searched for a country that is stable and with a good environment, enabling this dream. It has been essential for us that the country had a GDP per capita below a certain level, that there is political stability, and no contemporary violent conflicts. In addition, we sought a country that is relatively unknown as a tourist destination in Europe, but also possesses beautiful scenery and wildlife, relatively good infrastructure and low crime. Finally, should the country's inhabitants be characterized with a friendly people who have different nationalities welcome.
All this and more we found in Zambia!
Zambia is in every way a country with big differences. In our quest within its borders, it was quickly determined that the northern part of Zambia is the most suitable for this project. First and foremost, it is one of the least developed regions in the country, including the reduced availability of necessary resources including electricity and medicine, but most of all, the area is characterized by a poor school system. By building a school there while we are committed to developing nearby in cooperation with the locals, the project will be of huge benefit and the benefit of the northern province of Zambia.
The northern part of Zambia's resources are simultaneously characterized by a stunningly beautiful scenery, mountains, savannas and lakes, creating a wealth of opportunities for wildlife and sports activities, including adventure sports, fishing, boating, horseback riding and much more.
