About Taonga School

In 2015, Arise Africa began its partnership with Taonga School, started by Teacher Abi Brown in 2011. Originally from England, Abi came to Lusaka in 2009 to teach with Old MacDonald’s Farm, an organization that helps boys living on the street. She began tutoring the boys, and more and more children began showing up at their front gate. Today, they’ve passed on Taonga School to Arise Africa, continuing their impact on education and community development.

Taonga School currently serves children from Kindergarten to 2nd Grade. After completing second grade, students transition to the MacDonald Brown School, also under Arise Africa’s ownership, continuing their education until 12th Grade.

Through the generosity of amazing donors, the land has been purchased for MacDonald Brown School and, with your help, we’re ready to start phase two of the building process. Lusaka runs on a year-round school schedule, which means each year more and more graduating students will soon be without classrooms. Help us make MacDonald Brown School a reality by partnering with us to build a new school for grades 5-12.
