Dear Partners

Greetings from Zambia.

I would like to appreciate your continue support rendered to Save The Girls to see our project progressing up to the roof level;

This project has brought change in the lives of many people starting from the community members and leaders to the learners and teachers.

This project has given an opportunity to a girl child have access to quality education near their homes. They don’t have to walk 5 km to have access to education.

Through this project, community members and leaders have come to understand the importance of girl’s education not only boys. It has given work to volunteer teachers who dedicate their time and energy to teacher the vulnerable children in their community.

However, learners and teachers are still facing a big challenge Amidst COVID-19 of shortage of classrooms.

To keep you our sponsors updated on our fundraising progress , since November 2020 we have managed to raise through your donations $228.80. Thank you once more for this gift which will go along way. However, the stage where the project has reached need a substantial amount of money for us to put up a roof, windows and doors.

The Head Master says: my prayer is to see learners shifting in the newly constructed building upon reaching completion to solve the problem of overcrowding in classrooms amidst COVID-19 putting teachers and children at risk of this contagious virus. Currently learners are not able to completely adhere to the measures put in place against COVID-19 such as social distancing because of shortage of classrooms leading to learners dropping out of school. Any support to see this great project through its completion will have a big impact in the lives of vulnerable children especially on a girl child in accessing quality education. 

  

Thank you.

Faithfully yours

Dear Partners

Giving an update to benefactors who help us made a difference in the lives of the children of Nyamasinda is always a moment of joy and appreciation. 

Let me start by informing you about a change of our organization’s name, from Rural Children’s Hope to Save The Girls, change driven by the changing landscape in our communities where girls are still being denied access to education and are victims of early marriages and teenage pregnancies. Last Sinda District from January to September, recorded 171 teenage pregnancies as a result of school closure due to COVID-19.[1]That said, allow me to thank you for your continued support, since 2018, towards the building of the school in Nyamasinda.

From a tiny one classroom where more than 300 learners were receiving their education, we are now boasting of 3 additional classrooms, which are at roofing level.

 Day after day, our learners keep on asking us the same question: “when are we going to start using the new classrooms?” With the sensitization that our teachers have been giving to the learners of the public health and social preventive measures against Covid-19, learners are looking forward to the day they will be able to apply social distancing in the classrooms.

With our 1x3 classrooms block at the roofing level, since November 2020, we can only count on your continued and generous support for its completion. The Covid-19 pandemic’s community spread has been on the increase and cases of Covid-19 have since been diagnosed in Sinda District. Urgently roofing, fixing the doors and windows of the new building is for now our only hope of saving the lives of our learners and protecting them from the pandemic. We need your financial support now than ever before. Please give us the final push and impact the lives of the children of Nyamasinda.   kindly consider starting a monthly recurring donation and share the project to your friends to support this noble cause.

Thank you.

Faithfully yours

Dear Partners,

On behalf of Rural Children’s Hope Senior Management, I would like to thank you for your consistent financial support, especially during this difficult period of shrinking economy because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Your support has helped us move an other stage in the construction of our class block, which very soon will be accommodating the learners, as we provide quality education to them. 

Faithfully yours

Progress Update

Education is a fundamental human right. For this reason, no one should be excluded. Equitable quality education may lead to social justice and sustainable development. It is in this vein that we strived to ensure continuity in the provision of education to the children of Nyamasinda.

The period under review had not been easy for us, in the rural Zambia. As it is for the rest of the world, the Covid-19 pandemic had equally affected our operations. After a long period of restricted movements and lockdown, period during which schools were closed and activities had slowed down, most of our planned activities could not be implemented in good time.

The reduction in the numbers of community transmission of Covid-19 had pushed the Ministry of health to easy the restrictions, and allow schools to reopen. Though we reopened, not all the learners came back to school immediately. Classes were affected, because the tiny spaces that we utilize could not allow us to impose the social distancing measure of sitting the learners 1 meter apart, in one classroom. 

Besides these challenges, and with the support of the community and a builder that we had hired from Lusaka the Capital City of Zambia, we managed to continue the constructions works. With your support, we have managed to raise the foundation, build all the walls of the 1x3 classrooms up to the roofing level (see pictures below). The Lusaka experienced builder took the opportunity, during the constructions works, to mentor the local bricklayers and dagger boys, and transfer knowledge and skills, which could be useful in the next phase of the works. 

At this stage, we are looking to you, dear partners, to help us finish the building by roofing it, plastering and placing the doors, the windows, the ceiling and equipping it with desks for use. In a context of Covid-19, we do not have the luxury of time to confine our learners in one room, for fear of spreading to Covid-19. It is our sincere hope that the next support that we expect from you will help finish all the works and start using the newly constructed block for the education of these deprived and vulnerable children. 

I appreciate your continued support which is already making a difference in our community and are looking forward to your generous unfailing support.

Project Report

On behalf of Rural Children’s Hope Executive management, I would like to acknowledge receipts of USD 365.50 equivalent to ZMW 4,679.86 received on 30th October 2019 and USD 310.50 equivalent to ZMW 4,362 received on 4thFebruary 2020; making a total of USD 676 Equivalent to ZMW 9,041.86.

Thank you again to all our partners for your continued support to ensure that underprivileged children’s in Rural areas have access to quality and equitable Education in Zambia.

The above money will be used in the next quarter reason being that, due to rain seasons, we could not buy more cements or continue constructing. During this period our community leaders and members who assist us in mobilising local materials such as bricks, sand and water are busy with farming. Last year and the  beginning of this year we had a lot of rains that damaged even the road. Below are pictures of the project site.
