EDUCATE 300 CHILDREN IN NEED

Access to education lies at the heart of any development. Lack of education is both a part of the definition of poverty and a means for its diminution. Education is the driving force behind any strong economy and a prerequisite for social and economic growth. It creates opportunities and provides societies with a better educated and skilled workforce, which is necessary for stimulating development. Education is one of the most effective ways to reduce poverty, give people opportunity to improve their lives and raise their voices, promotes harmonious co-existence, improve their health, productivity and foster participation in civil society. The main purpose of education whether formal or informal is to produce people who will be useful members of society.

 

The project is helping educate over 500 orphans and vulnerable children allowing them to remain in school and improve on their life. This will reduce the burden on guardians who have taken up the responsibilities of taking care of orphans left behind by their relatives and this will also reduce poverty and crime in the community which is on increase as a result of children being found on the street. The fundraising target for this project is $20,000.00 out of which we have raised $3,229 with $16,771 left. This project is helping provide both academic and vocational education to over 300 children in need at Fortune School of Excellence formerly known as Fortune Community School in Solwezi District of Zambia. Zambia has witnessed unprecedented pandemic that has affected the learning at CCCYD. Charity Centre for Children and Youth Development now intends on drilling a borehole at Fortune School of Excellence for access to safe and clean drinking water.

VIRTUAL LEARNING

2020 has witnessed unprecedented pandemic that has affected the whole world. This contributed to the closure of schools in many countries. In order for us to continue providing education to the vulnerable children, our organization partnered with NEST4US and Village Book Builders for the purpose of providing virtual learning programs in Zambia. So far, over 100 students have attended the virtual learning classrooms (VCT).

EDUCATION IS A HUMAN RIGHT WHICH EVERY CHILD DESERVES!

Education, in particular, can leverage significant improvements in the lives of orphans and vulnerable children. Besides conferring knowledge and life skills, schooling can contribute to a child's psychosocial development and provide a safe, structured environment in turbulent times.

 

Millions of children in many vulnerable households are not learning because of poverty, discrimination, the quality of the education on offer, or because they are too hungry to learn. These children leave school before they acquire the basic skills and knowledge needed to thrive within society.

 

Education transforms children’s lives by helping them overcome poverty. This leads to better health and increased income opportunities. Without it, many children remain trapped in a life of poverty and hardship.

 

HELP EDUCATE 300 CHILDREN IN NEED project has helped over 441 orphans and vulnerable children who abandoned school due to poverty to go back to school and many are now able to read and write.   This project has helped reduce the burden on vulnerable guardians who have taken up the responsibilities of taking care of orphans left behind by their relatives who have died as a result of HIV and AIDS.  

The fundraising target for this project is $20,000.00 out of which we have raised $1,540.14

Charity Centre for Children and Youth Development (CCCYD) is a Non-profit, Non-political and Nonreligious Organizations which was established to help Orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs), Youth, women and persons with physical challenges improve their standards of Living through the provision of several life skills, education support, HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention, provision of micro-entrepreneurship skills and soft loans as well as material support.

We envision a society that will work towards eradication of poverty, HIV and AIDS, illiteracy among Orphans and vulnerable children, youths and women in Society.

The Organization's mission is to promote and enhance the capabilities of children, youth and women in North Western Province and beyond to effect positive social change that would necessitate the development of their lives, communities and the nation at large

Many orphans, in most areas of Zambia are dropping out of school due to poverty. This poverty is primarily the result of the HIV/AIDS pandemic which has ravaged the Sub-Sahara region claiming the lives of many adults. Children and the elderly have suffered most as a result of this pandemic.   Grandparents and children have become heads of households which they can barely support. This problem has been exacerbated by the harsh economic situation in the country Most of the orphaned children rely on outside help just to meet their basic day to day needs such as food and clothing. The children who have dropped out of school in these communities are unlikely to go back to school particularly children from rural areas and poor families. As a result most children get menace to the community by getting involved in activities such as illegal trading, theft, and vandalizing property and engaging in pre-marital sex. If this problem is not addressed soon the HIV infection rates among vulnerable children will go up!

It is against this background that Charity Centre for Children and Youth Development is raising money on GlobalGiving under the project HELP EDUCATE 300 CHILDREN IN NEED!

The project is helping educate over 500 orphans and vulnerable children allowing them to remain in school and improve on their life. This will reduce the burden on guardians who have taken up the responsibilities of taking care of orphans left behind by their relatives and this will also reduce poverty and crime in the community which is on increase as a result of children being found on the street.
