Olga’s project started in 2003. It was the idea of a private donor (the family of Olga Diappi in her memory), Giovanni, a volunteer of CeLIM (an Italian NGO which has been running development projects in Zambia since the ‘60s), and YCTC (a training centre for orphans and vulnerable youth based in Livingstone -Libuyu Compound- built up by Livingstone Diocese in partnership with CeLIM).

The Diappi Family wished for Olga’s inheritance to be shared with the community and for the community by helping YCTC to become economically sustainable. Hence the idea of building a guest house and showroom to cover the costs of the school and enable a greater number of youth in need to have access to training.
