Global Projects Zambia 2022

The FRT Global Project

The FRT team are thankful for the links that have continued with wonderful colleagues in Zambia.

The good news is that we are working together looking for new and innovative ways to reach more schools throughout the Southern Province and beyond with the FRT Rainbow Relaxation Programme and this is very exciting.

Enjoy news from the recent 2022 Global Project and see how you can get involved to help make a difference.

Our project began in July 2017 when FRT travelled to St Mulumba Special school in Choma, Zambia, Africa.

St. Mulumba is a special place that provides a home, education and family support for over 200 children with physical, emotional and life changing conditions. A number are orphaned, some have HIV and need very special care and support.

Warmly welcomed by staff and pupils we felt very privileged to have time to share the skills to deliver the Functional Reflex Therapy Routine working with staff and many of the pupils.

We received such wonderful feedback and observed some lovely responses from staff and children, it made us determined to continue our support.

FRT Global Project 2018

The FRT team returned to Zambia in July 2018, accepting invitations to visit and work with staff, pupils and parents in three schools.

Our project began in Siavonga Primary School, which can be found lying on the north shore of Lake Kariba. We then moved to Flamboyant Special School in Mazabuka for a further week before heading to St Mulumba Special School. It was wonderful to return to Choma following our trip in 2017. A privilege to provide ongoing FRT support for staff and pupils and to introduce some new educational activities and therapies.

Our fundraising enabled us to provide FRT tool kits for each school, educational materials, communication symbols, resources and some personal products for the orphanage.

FRT Global Project 2019

The FRT team returned to Zambia in June 2019; privileged to support two more special schools and delighted to make a return visit to St Mulumba.

This year the project began in Livingstone at the small Cheshire Homes Special Education Unit. We were able to work with staff and pupils also with parents and grandparents who came to work with us in the classroom. Everyone enjoyed learning the FRT hand routine. Not only did the parents work with their children to deliver the positive touch activity but the children gave the routine to their parents.

How beautiful it was to see this happening in the relatively short time we had been working with them all.

Travelling on to Sinazongwe district we were welcomed into Maamba Special School for a week and continued to share the positive touch skills to deliver the FRT rainbow routine. At this school we worked with all staff and all 72 pupils during the week.

This year during the project we were invited to visit the Principal Education Standards Officer PESO the District Education Board Secretary (DEBS) and meet up again with the Senior education Officer for the Southern Province.

The FRT team say a big thank you to Zambia for your interest and enthusiasm embracing the FRT rainbow programme for schools.

 FRT Global Project 2022

This year, like many people we were still a little apprehensive about travelling, so we based ourselves at St Mulumba Special School in Choma, providing training with the FRT rainbow programme for teachers, support staff, house mothers, parents and for many young people.

It did however take us much further than we had anticipated as our plans changed and flights were rescheduled, we travelled far and wide to take advantage of new opportunities. We were very grateful for all the help and for our safe travels.

Warmly welcomed back by the Senior Education Standards Officer from the Ministry of General Education in the Southern Province and the Headteacher of St Mulumba Special School, the team also had the privilege to meet and share the work of FRT for possible future project support with the Principal of the Zambia Institute of Special Education (ZAMISE), the Headteacher of the Multisensory International School in Lusaka and staff and Headteacher at the Airport School in Choma.

Thank you everyone.

The main aim of the FRT Global Project will always be to share skills and teach The Functional Reflex Therapy Rainbow Programme for the Classroom. But WOW! It is developing beyond our expectations and becoming so much more, there is lots we can offer and with your help it will continue to evolve.

FRT Global Project 2023

The FRT team, were delighted to return to Zambia for a 5th visit in 2023. It was a privilege to work with new schools, connect with new staff, parents, grandparents, young people, and church groups. Introducing the Functional Reflex Therapy Rainbow Relaxation Programme.

We invite you to enjoy the project video for 2023. With much gratitude to the many people who have continued to support our efforts; without whom the project would not be possible. And to share our vision for ongoing development as we work alongside our education colleagues in Zambia.

Together we are creating a positive difference.
