What we do
Learn about our partner schools, literacy training and dignity programme
We partner together with community schools; empowering their senior leadership teams to run their schools more effectively. We have mentored the Head Teachers and developed their leadership skills as they plan and implement school improvement plans.
We also have ongoing feeding programmes at our partner schools which provide a hot meal to each school child every school day. This really lifts a financial burden in many families. For those most vulnerable we distribute food parcels or other practical gifts that may assist them.
We develop education resources with local specialists and are working with the Zambian Ministry of Education to train teachers in the Jolly Phonics literacy programme.
Research shows the higher the literacy rate, the higher the socio-economic and human development of a nation. Hence, literacy not only empowers individuals, families and communities, but it also reduces poverty, improves quality of life, helps to attain gender equality and ensures peace, democracy and sustainable development.
