Hello Book Bus followers from Mfuwe, Zambia! With the help of children from our partner schools in The South Luangwa Valley we put together a video for Volunteer Week to say thank you! Due to internet issues, we have just now been able to upload it online. A big thank you to Croc Valley Camp for allowing us to eat up your bandwidth to publish the video online! You can view the video on Youtube at the following link:
Happy Volunteer Week 2013 from South Luangwa!
The music in the background is a song titled 'Say Ilil Che' (which means "It's Good") by Slap Dee, a famous Zambian musician who performed at the Nkalango Music Festival organized by the Chipembele Wildlife Education Trust in Mfuwe last year. Nkalango translates to "The Bush!" or "The Wild!" and the concert promoted the importance of the South Luangwa wildlife and conservation education. The event gave many local students the opportunity to perform on stage as well as just have fun singing and dancing for an afternoon!
Thank you to all of our past, present, and future volunteers for all that you do. The Book Bus would not be possible without all of your hard work and because of you children in the South Luangwa gain access to multitudes of colorful books, coloring pencils and crayons, colored card and crafts and gain priceless multicultural learning experience. Thank you from the bottom of all our hearts for everything you do to enrich each child's learning experience!
