Veep wife assures Chiawa residents
Kafue, March 6, ZANIS ——Wife of Vice President Charlotte Scott has assured the people of Chiawa in Kafue district that all projects that were being undertaken by HODI will continue despite the organization coming to a close.
Mrs Scott assured stakeholders that projects that were undertaken by HODI, a non Governmental Organisation which closed prematurely shall be continued.
The Vice president’s wife gave the assurance when she paid a courtesy call on Kafue District Commissioner, Grace Ngulube at her office yesterday.
Mrs Scot who did her two year academic research in Chiawa from 2009 to 2010 said many people in Chiawa including stakeholders were worried about the non completion of the projects since HODI had come to a close but assured them that the projects will be completed.
Mrs Scott disclosed that she had met with two donors from the United Kingdom who have pledged to continue sponsoring all the projects in Chiawa.
She stated that at the time of closure HODI was doing a water reticulation project at Kambale clinic maternity wing, construction of a 1×3 classroom block at Gota – gota primary school and sponsoring
more than 150 Orphans and Vulnerable children with school fees and other requirements.
And Kafue District Commissioner Grace Ngulube commended Mrs Scot for soliciting for funds to enable the completion of all the projects in Chiawa.
Mrs Ngulube said the impact that would have been created by the departure of HODI was going to be so huge for the district considering the many beneficiaries who include more than 150 pupils.
And HODI Programme Manager, Steven Mumbi who is still in charge of the projects in the interim said five women clubs namely Kabwadu, Maundu, Kandoka, Gota-gota and Chiawa have each been given a three hectare piece of land in order for them to engage in farming activities.
