Model Village Hut
Mission Statement

The Mission of the Mwizenge Sustainable Model Village is to establish a village in the Savannah Wilderness where the traditional Zambian/African philosophy and principles of Kufwasa and Serenity guide the everyday lives of the residents. This is the everyday life of simplicity, creativity, humility, minimal materialism, and sustainability. The model village will encourage social closeness among residents and help them recognize their connection to the rich resources of nature around them and spiritual life.
