The Sausage Tree Charity

The Sausage Tree Charity works to provide funding for three schools in the Luangwa Valley region in Zambia.  This unspoilt corner of Zambia is dominated by the South Luangwa National Park, a haven for african wildlife.  The park does provide employment, but most families in this area live in poverty and struggle to provide even the most basic education to children in the area.

Established in 2000 by husband and wife team,  Lu and Will Chignell, the charity was born out of their desire to help local children achieve an education despite the lack of government funding and the struggle for local families to meet even their most basic needs of food, clothes and medicines.

Chiwawatala, Chilongozi and Yosefe schools in the Luangwa Valley have been developed and supported by the Sausage Tree Charity and the team continue to expand their vision for bringing in new teachers and increasing the capacity of the classrooms.

We are very excited to be given the opportunity to contribute to this project.  We have designed a new identity based on a lovely webfont called Neucha and a new website is currently under construction using the excellent Woothemes Canvas theme.  More news on this project soon.  In the meantime watch the following video if you’d like to know more about the work being carried out by The Sausage Tree Charity:
