“Commit to Clean Water”… Mfuwe Schools Calendar 2017.

The Bushcamp Company - Zambia
Published September 15, 2016 06:55 AM






Each year the school children of Mfuwe turn their artistic talents to producing a fund-raising calendar. The 2017 calendar features artwork that demonstrates the benefits of the Bushcamp Company’s “Commit to Clean Water” campaign. Deep boreholes have been drilled in forty different village locations and schools, and the children have illustrated how daily life has been dramatically improved. Safe, clean water has resulted in better health and has allowed villagers to spend more time on productive activities rather than having to trek long distances to collect water from rivers and waterholes where they might encounter potentially dangerous animals. As an added benefit people are now able to better irrigate crops and gardens and grow much needed food.

The calendar will soon be available from Mfuwe Lodge.

Amazing images! I was privileged to see those children painting and they were all very dedicated, happy, and proud to be visiting Mfuwe Lodge in order to complete their projects! So many children are very talented and this calendar also makes a perfect gift!

What is Campfire?

Campfire is a place where published items with the most participation go so that everyone knows what’s hot. The more people that collaborate around an item the hotter the fire gets.

Starting a Campfire

Campfires get started when a published item in the Explore section recieves a high rate of participation from other members.

What is Stoking?

Stoking is a form of fire starting. When you stoke an item on safarious you’re basically promoting as a campfire worthy. Stoking has a higher value over comments and views taking place on an item.

The more stokes the higher the chances an item will catch and turn a campfire.
