Fundación Livingstone was founded in 2014 by Neil Collen, Ree Gillett and the Livingstone Partners team of Spain. Neil and Ree had spent many years visiting Africa and were aware of the needs of rural areas. In Zambia and through Project Luangwa they learned of the needs of the local communities and the lack of educational infrastructure. Neil, impressed by the “Livingstone” connection with Livingstone Partners proposed the idea of rebuilding a school in Zambia to his international partners and was met with great enthusiasm.
Since then, Kapita school has been rebuilt and the number of students has doubled. Livingstone Partners continues to support the project and have recently funded a new IT math program at Kapita school. Their support is invaluable and Kapita School students now have a better chance to be successful in math and other subject areas and through this success perhaps change the course of their lives.
