Improve School Infrastructure, Attendance & Attainment for Young People in Zambia
Despite its importance, education is in crisis in Zambia.
In many cases, the quality is insufficient, minimum performance goals are not being achieved, and children drop out of school early.
For many children, school ends after just a few years in primary and with only 43% continuing to secondary school education. Although access to primary education in Zambia has grown exponentially, disparities remain, particularly in rural settings.
Every child has the right to access safe, quality education.
We will support rural community schools by improving existing infrastructure and building new educational facilities to get more more children in school.
We will ensure schools are all inclusive with girl’s wash rooms and access for children with disabilities.
We will provide extra-curricular help sessions to prepare students for exams.
We will prepare children for the transition to secondary school.
