Mfuwe Schools' Calendar

Since 2004, we have produced a fund-raising calendar each year, using paintings done by pupils from the schools we support in Mfuwe. Each year we invite the pupils of the area to think about their daily lives - the challenges and the highlights - and to express this through their artwork.

After holding a competition at the schools, the best pupils are invited to Mfuwe Lodge to work with celebrated Zambian artist, Mulenga Chafilwa, in perfecting their pictures. The winning entries are then made into a calendar. The calendars are available at the Mfuwe Lodge Curio Shop, with all proceeds from the sale of this calendar going directly to various school projects.

The selected, winning artists are rewarded with game-drives, prizes and an afternoon "party" at Mfuwe Lodge.

The artwork for the 2018 calendar was completed earlier in the year and it is now on sale. Children from our sponsored schools were asked to illustrate the importance of conserving the area’s wildlife.
