The Livingstone 2013 Initiative...The Legacy
We decided that the Initiative should continue its work beyond the bicentennial year. Inspired by Livingstone’s own commitment to medicine and education and his ardent opposition to the slave-trade, we will be focusing on the small-scale community development projects we set up for 2013.
By the end of the bicentenary year, a firm and lasting legacy for the future had been established through The Bird Exchange of Storytelling, Music & Art between Scottish and Livingstone school children; The Livingstone Zambia-Scotland Medical Exchange and St Mary's School Chama, the new secondary school for vulnerable girls and orphans being built in north-eastern Zambia.
Following on from the highly successful David Livingstone Bicentenary, The Livingstone 2013 Initiative is continuing to work with The Zambian Tourism Board, businesses and tour operators within Livingstone and Zambia to help raise further awareness of the region as a tourism destination of choice and to build on and develop the community projects which we set up in 2013.
In 2014 we published our first Commemorative Publication as a "thank you" to our sponsors, partners, donors and colleagues both in Zambia and in the UK.
