The Limapela Foundation

Quality education for Zambia based on Christian values

Building and Infrastructure Fund

As we have expanded and developed our activities, each year has seen new infrastructure projects being carried out. It has been a priority to be well equipped for efficient learning, safety and good care, not wishing to be complacent or to settle for second best.

We greatly value the generosity of our many donors who have made it possible to achieve the standards we have since Limapela began in 2009.

Fundraising starts when project plans are finalised. We rely on grant-givers, trusts and foundations, supplemented by appeals to corporate and private donors.


  1. To assess future needs in each Limapela activity and plan ahead according to these needs.
  2. To create pleasing and safe environments that will encourage good learning and a sense of ownership.
  3. To draw up realistic building plans that meet the needs.
  4. To build attractive structures, insisting on good workmanship and using quality materials that will last for many years.
  5. To finish, furnish and equip to high standards that will become the pride of the users.
