Classroom Sponsorship

by Chikumbuso

Summary

Chikumbuso Women and Orphans Project runs a free school for orphans ranging from kindergarten through sixth grade. This education is 100% free which means that Chikumbuso purchases all school supplies, clothing, books, and feeds the children lunch everyday. Presently, over 350 children attend our school and we need your help to keep them there. Please help us help them by pledging to support a classroom.

Challenge

Chikumbuso began in 2005 and has grown so quickly that funding has become a serious issue. It is important to us that we remain a free school to these children who would otherwise not be receiving any education, but our reach and our funding is limited.

Solution

Your support will help us to keep the school running smoothly. It is so important to these children that they know their schooling is not at risk.

Long-Term Impact

Keeping our children in school will benefit the community as it will raise responsible, educated young adults who can become leaders in the community and learn to give back and help others.
