Kwasha Mukwenu Vocational Training Centre

Peace Corps Zambia is one of the biggest Peace Corps posts around the world; we currently have over 250 volunteers serving in country. That said, from time to time, we get opportunities to help one another with our programs. Peace Corps Zambia has a total of four different work sectors: 1) Health, 2) Education, 3) Agriculture, and 4) Fish Farming. There are also volunteers called Response Volunteers, working on high-impact projects, lasting up to one year. I was able to join a few other volunteers and help one of these Response Volunteers with his work with a newly built training centre, Kwasha Mukwenu Vocational Training Centre, a training centre for Zambians living with disabilities, empowering them to secure employment and live happy and healthy lives. An exhausting day, for sure, equipped with heat and humidity, but well worth it.
