Martin and Karolyn 2Martin Simbeye – Co-Founder / Principal

I am the Principal and also teach Maths and Science. As well as teaching and leading the school, I work with George to oversee the building side of the project so my time is always spoken for, especially as there is always another list or job for me to work on! I love being in the classroom and when the students grasp a new concept it is the best feeling!

                         Karolyn Simbeye – Co-Founder / Teacher / Administrator

I teach RE and help with a lot of the administration at school. I love my subject but also like being involved in the wider running of the school – as well as heading up the Pre-School (soon to include Grade 1) which our kids go to. It is very busy but is hugely fulfilling and it is never hard to come to work every day!


Secondary School


George 3George Sichivula – Administrator

I am the Administrator for VTS. I am 46 years old and have lived in Kapiri since 1975! I am a Red Cross member and the school’s First Aider. I was Martin Simbeye’s senior at Secondary School and since leaving school I have worked with 4 companies, all based in Kapiri. Now being at Vinjeru Trust School it is like I have started discovering myself and I have become a student again because I am learning a lot – I really enjoy the work here!



Johnson Mpotalinga – Teacher

I am originally from Zimbabwe but have lived in Zambia for a long time, and Kapiri is truly my home now. I teach Social Studies (which incorporates Geography, Civics and History) and Business. I particularly enjoy teaching History. I really enjoy the different teaching styles that we use at Vinjeru Trust School



Charity Masiya – Teacher

I am a Science and Maths teacher and I like challenges and solving problems. My favourite food is Shawama (chipati/pitta bread filled with chicken kebab, chips, sauce and salad). I would love to see more children in Zambia being educated well as with education, you can be someone great in life.


Victor Chisenga

I come from the Central part of Zambia. I teach Religious Studies and Computer Studies. My favourite sports are volleyball and chess. I am also a pastor at a local church called Glory Ministries. I enjoy playing the piano, singing and preaching the gospel. I am married to Theresa and have a daughter named Charisa.
