Children In Need
About half of Zambians have no formal school education and only 1 out of 3 have completed elementary school. We help support many Mazabuka regional school in several ways. We provide breakfast, books and uniforms to improve the children performance and sense of self-respect. They understand that somebody far away cares about their future and their success in life.
We provide funds to:
- Build classrooms and teachers’ houses
- Provide books and school supplies
- Uniforms and shoes to attend school
- Provide daily meals for 1500 – 2000 school children
- Provide salaries to 40 teachers
The Schools we support are:
- Itebi (~300 children)
- Manyaana (~520 children)
- Namulonga (~300 children)
- Nziba (~640 children)
- Simwaba (~650 children)
- Siyowi (~562 children)
Manyaana School Thanks to many compassionate donors, we provided the funds necessary for local volunteers and workers to rebuild the initial existing deteriorated classrooms (they had no windows, floor or roof). Manyaana school housed a few dozen students but has now grown to an attendance of over 450! We are proud that our donations have increased enrollment and allowed that each student receives a meal and vitamins every day!
