Jamie en Jane Jamieson gevorm het 'n paar jaar nadat hulle uit 'n spel wat in Zambië teruggekeer. Later SENT became SENTAfrica.
Eers, Ons is besig met klein projekte in Zambië, Ethiopia and Malawi. Sedert 2012 ons is net besig om in Malawi.
SENTAfrica is a registered charity in the UK. The primary purpose of SENTAfrica is to fund the construction of a local non-governmental organisation (NGO) in Malawi. This NGO is legally registered in Malawi under the name of Livingway Education. The construction phase will include setting up two separate income streams ('n gastehuis en 'n hamer-meul) so that funding local community development can be made from the resources of Livingway Education.
The projects Livingway Education will be carrying out will depend on the success of the two income generating projects. The main idea will be to carry out skill-sharing exercises in agriculture, health and education. Individuals with skills, ervaring en bewese vermoë sal gewerf word om te slaag op wat hulle weet aan diegene wat sal baat vind in die gemeenskap.
In the first year of operation, LIVINGWAY EDUCATION only made 20% of its operating costs. In the second year that rose to 60%. We are expecting that this will rise again in the year 2018-2019. There are still financial challenges to face. The installation of electricity could cost up to £10,000 and LIVINGWAY EDUCATION needs to find around £1000 to pay the shipping costs of tools and equipment early in 2020.

The process of becoming a self-reliant organisation is still ongoing but there is sufficient evidence from the financial figures to show that this will soon become a reality. A report will soon be available.
