    Duke was very busy today, but we installed a device in the chapel and the one in the children's ward too, and I started the process of helping people get connected to the new wifi network! I also got to sit and talk with Melissa Ebbers, who is the Executive Director's wife! It was wonderful swapping stories with her and just asking her about her time in Zambia! Over the course of today I made a couple little friends! There was ...

    ... use, and doctor retention in the country. The following are some troubling statistics: Only 1/4 of Zambia's graduating med students actually practice medicine in Zambia. The rest leave the country to practice in either the US or UK. It costs only 5 Kwacha for a pack of cigarettes. A bottle of Coke costs 6. Less than 10% of schools in Lusaka have anti-smoking campaigns or material. Of those schools that "have" a campaign, more than half only have a single no-smoking sign. ...

Adding to this problem is the results take a long time to come back from testing done at other facilities or they are not transferred back to Bwafwano. Most of the decision-making for ARV treatment are ...

    ... As a reference, tuition for Catholic private school in Zambia (seemingly the most prestigious) costs 1600 Kwacha per trimester. Even government school cost several hundred Kwacha per trimester. It is not uncommon for working people to make somewhere in the realm of 30 Kwacha per day, just about $5. A family of 3, 4, or 5 kids at an income of K25/week will never be able to afford tuition. Now imagine an orphaned older brother trying to ...

    We Made it!

    A travel blog entry by jjelenko on May 04, 2015

    ... here at Backpackers Lusaka. Just a couple of thoughts as I step into this wonderful continent for the first time:
    1. The sprawl here is real. It actually reminded me much of the sprawl in Calgary. 2.5 million people.
    2. People here are very friendly and one of our professors said it feels like the safest African country he has ever visited.
    3. There are huge crop circles here! Irrigation ...
