Summary

Due to the effects of the pandemic, 20% of children in our program have lost their sponsorship and the waiting list for the new school year in January is growing. Our partner, Almoayed Ventures, is currently matching all new full sponsorships! This means when you sponsor one child, two children will receive an education! Make a one time donation or donate monthly & we'll send you details of the children you have sponsored. For about a dollar a day you'll be providing two pathways out of poverty.

Challenge

A recent study estimates that 9.7 million children across the world may never return to school post-COVID-19 school closures. Schools in the community have re-opened, but without sponsorship these children will not have the chance to get an education. 48% of children in Zambia do not finish primary school and 65% of the children who do complete primary school are unable to enter secondary school. 41% of Zambian children are forced into labour and the pandemic has only made the situation worse.

Solution

There have been a lot of challenges this year, but going to school shouldn't be one of them. By sponsoring a child you are giving them an education and the opportunity to create a better life for themselves, their family, and their whole community. Your sponsorship pays for a child's school fees for a year, a uniform, school bag, pair of shoes and all necessary school supplies. A portion of the fee also goes into a fund to improve the quality of education for all students at their school.

Long-Term Impact

Individual earnings increase by 10% for each year of school completed. By becoming a sponsor you are investing in a child's future. Without education, the cycle of poverty will continue through generations. For every child sponsored, the community of Livingstone takes one step closer to having a brighter and more prosperous future. "You get to be educated and you'll be able to reach great heights because you're educated and you can do anything for yourself." - Sponsor a Child Student
