Projects directly under the Canaan Office, Lusaka

In June 2010 we started Canaan Nursery and Primary School school for street children in Lusaka and it opened with just 3 children to begin with. Now we have 130 children from Nursery to Grade 7, and the plans are to expand the school to about 200 children. The Japanese Embassy donated a bus to transport the children to and from school and there are seven volunteer teachers at the school and seven other volunteers doing work including project management, cleaning and driving.
