About 250 children are learning under a mango tree at Matipa community school in Lunga district of Luapula province.
Matipa community school has no infrastructure and the church building, the pupils were squatting in collapsed last week forcing them to attend classes under a mango tree.
The school only goes up to grade three and the two volunteer teachers are grade 12 school leavers.
First Lady Esther Lungu was yesterday in Lunga on her continued tour of the province.
Mrs. Lungu interacted with the female pupils and encouraged them not to give up on education despite their social economic status.
She also donated various items to vulnerable groups in Matipa ward.
