How the school is run

The School is administered by the school's foudner, Donata Kalunga, who liaises with the Ministry of Education and local government.

Within the Zambian education system, ‘community schools’ are run by the community where there is no available government school due to distance or remoteness. Donata School falls under this label as it specifically caters for disabled children in Mkushi. It is run on a voluntary basis with no school fees, and limited government help.

The administrator, teachers, cook and other general helpers work as volunteers however they do receive an allowance in cash or food to assist them.

Adrienne Hunt funds the school activities as well as further education for children and teachers, mobility aids and health care.

School costs cover rent, materials for building projects, food, books and stationary and allowances for the teachers and administrator.
