 The
turning
of
the
first
sod!
 
 Dear
all,
it
has
begun.
After
a
year
and
a
half
of
preparations,
Glenn,
René,
Magnus
together
with
local
employees
 began
the
construction
of
the
area/school
in
early
October.
The
focus
from
the
start
is
to
build
hammock
houses
for
 the
20
volunteers
who
will
arrive
around
Nov.
1.
We
have
hired
30
local
workers,
and
they
bring
any
prejudice
about
 laziness
among
African
men
to
shame.
They
really
work
hard,
and
it
is
a
great
pleasure
to
work
with
them.
The
 pictures
below
were
taken
in
recent
weeks.

 Recently
we
have
also
had
our
"Investment
Act"
finally
approved
by
the
Zambian
government.
This
is
essential
to
get
 an
extended
lease
of
the
land
from
14
years
to
99
years.
Furthermore,
it
is
important
in
relation
to
permits
and
 potential
exemption
from
import
duty.
Most
importantly,
this
approval
is
a
general
endorsement
of
the
entire
project
 by
the
Zambian
government.
With
this
Investment
Act,
we
have
committed
ourselves
to
invest
500.000
USD
during
 the
next
five
years
in
the
country.

 
 



 
 
 
 


Support
 Support
for
Project
Zambia
is
still
incredibly
high.
The
association
Eventure
has
recently
reached
400
members,
and
 has
to
date
collected
250.000
DKK.
Eventure
has
already
sent
200.000
DKK
to
Zambia
for
material
procurement.
 Recently
BankInvest
supported
the
project
with
50,000
DKK.
The
Fundraise
Group
(Louise,
Lars,
Vanessa,
Henry,
Jacob,
 Rebecca,
Nete,
Line)
are
working
towards,
that
next
time
we
write
to
you,
there
will
be
many
more
good
news
on
that
 front.
The
association
has
now
been
approved
by
the
Danish
Tax
Office
under
the
Assessment
Act
§
8A,
which
means
 that
contributions
of
between
500
DKK
and
15.500
DKK
are
tax
deductible.
The
association
will
submit
the
relevant
 information
to
the
tax
authorities.
We
still
lack
700.000
DKK
to
reach
our
goal,
so
if
you
know
anyone
(company
or
 private
individual)
who
would
like
to
support
the
good
cause,
please
write
to
us
at
forening@eventure.dk.



 
 



The
Eventure
Day
 th

The
30 
of
August
we
held
Eventure
Day,
and
we
had
a
totally
terrific
day
with
lots
of
laughs
and
good
energy.
The
 pictures
above
and
below
were
taken
during
the
day.
In
particular,
Dulla
and
Said
were
a
highlight
of
the
day,
creating
 beautiful
rhythms
and
teaching
us
all
African
dance
steps.
The
man
in
the
red
shirt,
below
right,
is
Kim
Frandsen,
who
 in
2011
will
bike
12,000
km
from
Cairo
to
Cape
Town
in
the
“Tour
de
Africa”.
Kim
will
use
the
race
to
collect
 contributions
in
at
home
from
Denmark.
Contributions,
with
which
he
has
chosen
to
support
Project
Zambia.



 
 
 
 
 
 
 Doctors
ready
to
go
 Health
is
a
vital
part
of
Project
Zambia.
We
have
therefore
created
a
group
in
the
association
consisting
of
four
 doctors
/
medical
students
(Mie,
Julie,
Ebbe
and
Erik).
From
this
group
Erik
and
Ebbe
are
going
to
Zambia
on
the
 th 27 
of
December
to
spend
three
weeks
mapping
the
health
conditions
with
a
professional
perspective.
This
is
 done
both
to
provide
better
information
about
health
/
disease
issues
for
the
many
volunteers
who
will
be
 arriving,
and
to
get
a
better
knowledge
about
which
community
projects
Project
Zambia
can
do
in
the
local
area,
 when
we
get
so
far.
Above,
middle,
Ebbe
is
giving
an
introduction
to
the
health
group
at
the
Eventure
Day.



 Do
you
know
someone?

 We
need
someone
who
can
help
us
on
the
administrative
front.
It
is
specifically
help
with
administrative
tasks
in
 Project
Zambia
and
the
association
Eventure.
It
may
be
to
register
new
members
of
the
association,
send
information
 of
contributions
to
tax,
simple
bookkeeping
for
the
association,
updating
the
website
etc..
We
estimate
that
the
tasks
 will
take
max.
five
hours
a
week.
As
the
association's
money
may
not
be
used
for
any
administrative
task,
the
help
will
 basically
be
unpaid.
Potentially
we
can,
however,
reward
a
year’s
work
with
a
trip
to
Zambia.
We
think,
the
job
might
 fit
well
for
an
early
retiree,
who
has
a
little
extra
time
and
wishes
to
support
a
good
cause
with
some
of
that
time.
 Would
you
like
to
help,
or
know
someone
who
might,
please
write
to
us
at
forening@eventure.dk.
