Hip hip hooray - students in Zambia are back to school!
After a delayed start due to COVID-19 restrictions, schools re-opened in February for the 2021 school year.
The three new classrooms that you made possible have been full of grade 3, 6 and 7 students, and have improved the average teacher to student ratio at the school from 1:60 to 1:45! This will improve even more in the next few months - the District Education Board Secretary has committed to providing the school with more teachers by the end of this first term. More desks to come too!
Along with the three classrooms, the two attached office spaces are being used for students to sit and work during the gaps in their class schedule and for meetings with the principal and teachers.
The students are very excited about the new classrooms and they all want to be in them!
We will be checking in every semester to see how the classrooms have improved attendance rates, marks, and the overall education experience for both the students and the teachers.
You have made an impact on many - thank you! Better education means a greater chance of stopping the cycle of poverty. These new classrooms will allow children to learn in an environment that enables them to grow, thrive, and have access to more opportunities.
