This is something you can help with

TR Gregory of Genomicron blog is trying to help his parents as they sell their house and move to Zambia to do good work there, working with the Livingstone Performing Arts Foundation to try to rebuild the old Livingstone Theater.:

The Livingstone Performing Arts Foundation (LiPAF) mission is to create and perform traditional and original works of music, song and dance which reflect the history, culture, languages and ethnic background of Zambia. Operating as a not for profit organization, LiPAF will enrich the community by providing opportunities for employment, sponsorship of a variety of needy programs and services, and educational programs on topics related to the human condition.

Look around the Foundation site and donate if you can.

First quick impression of this project: why just Livingstone's name? Why not hyphenate and the add the name of his foremost native assistant or important native artist to the name? Otherwise, it sounds like a task that is reflective of the "white man's burden."

P.S. good site.
