It takes a community to provide good education and in our Green Safaris communities in Malawi and Zambia, everyone plays a part.

From student and teacher sponsorships to school infrastructure and teacher housing development, we are building a holistic learning environment that benefits students, teachers and the broader community.

Background pattern

An Island Child

High achieving and disadvantaged students from Likoma Island are sponsored throughout their secondary schooling, with many of the stipends provided to students co-sponsored by guests visiting Kaya Mawa.

Often over 100 students across several schools are funded in a year. While the main focus of sponsorships is improving access to education, they are also key in promoting youth empowerment, improved health and personal growth.

To improve long-term community development on Likoma Island, a handful of students receive sponsorship of their university studies, as funded by guests from Kaya Mawa. On completion of studies, the students have agreed to return to Likoma Island to serve their community.

Background pattern


The Likoma Conservation Foundation supports several nursery schools on Likoma Island by employing local Malawian teachers, providing learning materials and facilitating feeding programs to promote strong and holistic childhood development.

Many primary and secondary schools on Likoma Island struggle to fund the construction of infrastructure needed to promote a good quality education for their students.

The Likoma Conservation Foundation assists several of these schools on a needs-specific basis, including building teacher houses and student toilets.

Green Safaris


Conservation education for local children near Kafue National Park is vital. Green Safaris supports programs in two schools teaching topics like conservation, tree importance, climate change, and littering.

The best part? Excursions to Ila Safari Lodge where kids see wildlife firsthand. These experiences instill a love for nature, shaping future conservationists who will protect the park and its animals.

Trust School

The Tongabezi Trust School or Tujatane was set up by the owners of Tongabezi Lodge in 1996 to provide underprivileged rural children, living within walking distance of the school, with a sound and holistic education in order to improve the quality of their lives.

Tujatane has grown from a pre-school class of 15 children, to a primary school with over 240 students. The school is completely funded on donations. Apart from the first classroom, which Tongabezi built, the development of the school has been made possible through the generous sponsorship of donors all over the world.

Today’s children will have to deal with a lifetime of climate issues, more than any generation before them. Making their first steps into the world while navigating environmental challenges, it is essential that children learn about nature conservation. Through the Conservation Education Program, we’re empowering future leaders with environmentally friendly ideologies.

In collaboration with Chipembele clubs, we designed the Conservation Education Clubs. Over the course of 15 weeks, the 6th grade pupils of Nalusanga and Lusekelo Primary schools will learn about a variety of conservation subjects.

They learn about subjects like climate change, what is conservation, human-wildlife-conflicts, poaching and the importance of trees. These lessons are given by their own teachers, our Conservation Education Coordinator or by a guest lecturer. These guest lecturers are field professionals like researchers from Zambian Carnivore Program, an organic farmer, or the rangers from the Department of National Parks and Wildlife.

The best part of the club is that they get to go on field trips into the park. Ila Safari lodge have hosted trips where the pupils get to go on a game drive, have a nice lunch and go on the boat for the first time. The guides tell them everything about the wildlife and why we should protect them. And they’re often surprisingly lucky, spotting elephants, lions, leopards, hippos and even cheetahs!

Teacher Housing

It is a basic fact that better housing attracts higher qualified teachers and the three-bedroom houses that we build are considered excellent teacher accommodation and having the desired effect of making the schools in this area more attractive to teachers.

This is why we extend the reach of our involvement in education from the classroom to building housing for teachers. By donating 10% of all proceeds from Livingstone Island to building houses for teachers from Mukuni Village, we aim to encourage inspirational teachers and ultimately a kinder world.
