Dear Supporters,

We hope you and your loved ones continue being safe and well during these endless challenging times.

We would like to share with you an overview of the project that you contributed to with your generous donations. Space4all project started on October 9, 2019 and became operational on March 5, 2020. But 2020 was truly a rollercoaster!

  • June 1st 2020, marked the partial re-opening of Zambian schools for the examination classes of Grades 7, 9 and 12. Space4all welcomed back the sponsored students and we used the space to prepare them for their upcoming exams in strict adherence to Zambian government prescribed COVID-19 guidelines: all students had to wash their hands before coming into the classroom, wear face masks and maintain physical distance. We are happy to report that ALL students successfully passed their exams and are moving up a grade!
  • December 2020 was the end of the school year with a safe celebration for the students in Space4all who showed resilience during this difficult year. 
  • Fast forward to February 1st 2021, all schools have re-opened in Zambia for all grades! We are therefore pleased to have all our pupils back at Space4all for a new school year where they can benefit from individual mentoring and group tuition; and with a new school year came new uniforms, school supplies and masks (see pictures below).

In the brief period that the center has been in existence we have felt the great impact that it has on our work and the community: having a multipurpose facility in the heart of a vulnerable community empowers and inspires students and facilitates the work of the teachers and mentors, enabling them to improve how they support children, allowing them to dedicate more quality time to each child, and to give more tailored support. It is indeed a safe environment to anchor Chance4all programs: a place for students to study, work with a tutor, gain computer skills, benefit from the nutrition program, develop important life skills, increase resilience, and make positive connections amongst themselves and with the other students of the school and community. Space4all is also being used by the Bauleni community at large and will be even more in the future (subject to COVID restriction) for upcoming projects/workshops…

It has been a very interesting journey and we are so excited that it has materialized! We also recognize that it would never have been possible without the tremendous support of our committed donors. We are proud to be part of this community and to be on this journey with YOU! We take this opportunity once more to recognize just how much we value your support and to extend our heartfelt gratitude to you all for your valuable contributions. Whatever we were able, and will be able to dois  a direct result of the contributions of our donor community. We could not have achieved Space4all without YOU!

Natotela Sana!

Dear Supporters,

We hope you and your loved ones are doing well during these challenging times. Schools in Zambia were closed from the end of March, and so was our Space4all community center. As a direct response to COVID-19, we had to readjust and be creative with our objectives and activities for our Space4all project to support the students and vulnerable members of the Bauleni community.

Space4all in Action during COVID-19:

Providing Tuition for Examination Classes at Space4all
As announced in the previous report, as of June 1st, there was a partial re-opening of Zambian schools for the examination classes of Grades 7, 9 and 12.With the partial re-opening, we were able to welcome back our students in our Space4all community center, so that students in those grades could prepare for their upcoming exams. We strictly followed COVID-19 governmental guidelines, therefore all students had to wash their hands before coming into the classroom, wear face masks and maintain physical distance.During this period we welcomed a new science teacher for the tuition of the secondary students. This support is still ongoing and is making a very positive impact on the students

Distribution of Homework Packages at Space4all

In response to schools being closed, we introduced "homework packages" to support the continued learning of Chance4all students in 7 subjects. These were handed over to them at Space4all and were meant to provide learning material over a 4-week period. Our plan was to extend this service to the community schools in the event that schools would remain closed. Fortunately, the Zambian government announced that schools would re-open as of Monday, September 21st. This program has been halted but we are prepared to resume this initiative should schools be closed again due to COVID-19.

Activities at Space4all since September 21

Since September 21, when the schools reopened for all grades, we have been happy to welcome back students from Grade 1 to 12 and offer individual mentoring and group tuition. We have also resumed our nutritional program which, during lockdown, was substituted by the provision of individual food packages directly to the families of sponsored students.

These last months have been a real challenge for the whole world. We are proud to say that, even in such difficult circumstances, we managed to be flexible and adapt the activities for Space4all to the rapid changes in our operating context to the benefit of the children and the community we support. We take this opportunity to recognize how much we value your support and to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all that have made this possible through your valuable contributions. Whatever we were able to do was a direct result of the contributions of our donor community. We could not have achieved all this without you!

Dear Supporters,

We are excited to share how far we have come since our last report. We have metamorphosed from having a dream to the dream being a concrete reality.

On Saturday, March 7, Chance4all organized its third annual workshop for the sponsored students and their families/guardians. We had a full house with nearly all 40 sponsored children attending the workshop, and we were excited to be able to host the event in the newly built Space4all facility. We couldn't have wished for a better opportunity to launch the new space. We are proud that Space4all offers a great place for the children to learn in a safe and healthy environment.

Unfortunately, in light of the current worldwide spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, and following the Zambian government's decision to close all schools and other education centers as from March 20th until further notice, Chance4all had to interrupt temporarily its weekly tuition program. Guided by the advice of medical experts across the world, as well as decisions of other schools, we believed that the best way to protect the health and safety of our students, staff and community was to stop our program, thereby minimizing contact with individuals outside of households. [Nevertheless, during the lockdown, Chance4all remained committed to our students and the community. Chance4all continued to be in contact with the children, our Program Manager and Officer, and Caretaker communicated with the families to check on the wellbeing of our students].

As of June 1st, with the partial re-opening of Zambian schools for the examinations for Grades 7, 9 and 12, Space4all has been able to resume Chance4all weekly tuition program for secondary students. Additional tuitions have been organized to help the students catch up with the missing weeks of school. Grades 7, 9 and 12 have their national exams coming up, and our respective students are already studying hard in order to achieve good results. Within our new Space4all building, we fully respect COVID-19 governmental guidelines, therefore all students have to wash their hands before coming into the classroom, are wearing cloth face masks and keeping physical distance. We are already looking forward to being back to the full extent soon!

But Space4all is still developing to its full potential to efficiently serve its students and community. Space4all will be finalized once all IT equipment is purchased and connected, and solar panels installed, allowing Space4all to be fully functioning despite the numerous load shedding, or power cuts.

As always, we would like to again extend our heartfelt gratitude to all that have made this possible with your valuable contributions. We could not have achieved all this without you!

Dear Supporters ,

Last October, Chance4all started the construction of its new project: A Space4all. A Space4all is a multipurpose facility which will empower and inspire students and will support our teachers and mentors as they implement a more inclusive, equitable and effective quality education.  

We were excited not only to be able to feature our project under the GlobalGiving December Accelerator, but also to graduate! We are now a proud partner of GlobalGiving, which contributes greatly to our credibility and visibility as an organization, and thus the sustainability of our NGO. Just two months after graduating we are very close to reaching our monetary goal and completing A Space4All project. Thanks to your overwhelming support, as of February 28, 2020, we have raised $16,445 from more than 130 donors and have made significant progress, as you can see in the attached pictures: from a single brick we have reached the stage of painting, installing utilities, procuring desks and chairs, making our dream a reality!

We are still raising funds to procure IT equipment, including computers for the space. Once the building is completed, it will be made available to the students and school for community meetings and events, tuition and mentoring, giving them a safe space where they can thrive academically and develop important life skills they need to build a bright future. 

On March 7th 2020 we plan to hold our annual workshop in the new space, “A Space4all”. The meeting between students, their families and the Chance4all team is an opportunity to have a deeper connection with the community, the students and their families through one on one meetings.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thank you to all that made this possible with your valuable contributions. We could not have achieved all this without you!

To be continued...until next report!
