Build 1x4 classroom block for 300 pupils in Zambia

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

Lusaka, 20th November 2020

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.
