Project Luangwa was formed in 2009 in response to the global recession and its impact on tourism in the Luangwa Valley. Five of the major lodge operators started charging clients a small levy for the Luangwa Community and Conservation Fund with a focus on education and community development. Today, the charity is managing all their earlier community projects, as well as many more schools in the area. It is supported by Robin Pope, Kafunta, Shenton, Flatdogs and Croc Valley. You can support by staying at the lodges, and in numerous other ways. More information at www.projectluangwa.org.
