Zambia is a
democracy. Michael Sata was voted president since last election in 2011. The economy of Zambia has grown in last couple years (growth due to mining copper and other ores.) Tourism and agriculture have become more and more important to the economy. Even though the economy has grown, most people have no electricity. In fact, the majority of the people have none at all!

People of Zambia
The people of Zambia speak the language of Bantu. There are 100,000 people living there. The people there stay loyal to their tribe or clan, but they also have a large global identity. Zambians mostly are made up of tribes and clans that came from other countries between the years 1500 and 1700 and they helped make up the Zambian culture. The first president, Kenneth Kaunda, helped to make up the slogan “One Zambia, One nation” and it was considered a strong symbol of Zambia.

There are two different types of school in Africa, primary school and secondary school
School begins at seven years of age 7
Secondary school has two phases, lower secondary school and upper secondary school
At the end of primary school people take an exam to get into secondary school and continue their education
Over 90% of children are enrolled in primary school and most will continue
In Zambia there are SOS schools and facilities that provide education to children from SOS villages
Throughout Africa a full education is precious, only 1 out of 4 people will finish school
Zambia is located between 1300 metres and 1000 metres. That makes Zambia a very enjoyable climate.
Zambia had a really poor education system, less than five percent of Zambia’s population would get into primary school
Since then Zambia has invested heavily in school
The government funds schools for better facility, desks, and other supplies
