Global Activism: A community centre in Zambia helps keep a village employed

Elke Kroeger-Radcliffe is the founder of the Tikondane Community Centre. She’s been on the show before, and when she was in town for the Global Activism Expo, she stopped by to give us an update on how things are going at Tikondane.

The center is located in a small town called Katete in the eastern province of Zambia. Tikondane sponsors a community school, adult education and eco-tourism programs. They also offer a number of income-generating activities for people in the village.

Elke first went to Zambia as a nurse, with plans to teach basic healthcare, but she found herself doing a whole lot more.
