steve biko social centre
The Steve Biko Social Centre is situated right at the heart of one of Lusaka's most densely populated areas of deprivation - Bauleni Compound. The Centre is run by a small Italian NGO 'In & Out of the Ghetto' and its director, Diego Casinelli lives and works in the compound. The aim is to build the capacity of the youths in the compound through active participation in the development of the community in which they live. The Estelle Trust has supported the development of this Centre and provided the funds to have chairs and desks made by a local carpenter for the children. To help out-of-school learning, Bana Tandizo is supporting the use in the Centre of the iSchool programme, a tablet-based interactive learning system designed specifically for use in Zambia.
