Hi Martina,
Thank you so much for your support! We believe that approach could be easily replicated and scaled up within Luangwa District where we work, and across Zambia. We will be working closely with the Ministries of Education and Health and the local authorities in our pilot phase with a view to doing just this. Similar mobile outreach approaches providing basic healthcare in remote communities in Luangwa are already working very well and are very popular with communities. I am sure that this approach would work well in neighbouring countries with similar challenges.

Imogen and Team.

Thanks for your support John!

Hi Shona,
Thanks for your comment and support for this project. That's a great idea to include nutrition, WASH, safety and positive parenting outreach as part of the mobile classroom services. We will definitely look at the needs of children with disabilities and their families in a holistic manner when designing the 'classroom' and services.
Thanks,
Imogen and Team
