Landscape of Mukuni Village with some houses.   As one drives through the village to the structures mentioned above, visitors are treated to some insight into the modern lifestyle of the residents of Mukuni village.  There are stores, bars and cell phone  shops. The rather strange combination of world renowned brands flashed amongst the basic housing and buildings, makes for  an interesting mix. To the western edge of the village one finds the schooling systems have  developed over recent years. Both primary and secondary schools are well established and provide for over 1500 students. The structure and curriculum are excellent and the teaching bodies well committed. It is also enjoyable to see the sporting facilities provided with a number of football fields, soccer being the obvious favourite. It is not far from these schools that one finds a fairly modern clinic and two large churches. As is the case with the majority of Zambia the community is generally Christian and church attendance high.  These have played a positive role in the development of the community over the last 100 years. Along the periphery of the village, as one descends the edge of the large hill that the village is set upon, we find that the community has worked together to develop a well established farming system. This includes maize and sorghum, as well as the rearing of cattle, chickens and goats.
