Our Commitment to Communities

By Sarah Nielsen | Impact Manager

To Our African Impact Foundation Family,

I hope this message finds you healthy and happy. It is difficult to stay positive during these tough times, however I myself have gotten through this time by thinking about the incredible impact you have all made and will continue to make on the people and environment across the African continent.

African Impact has had to go into a temporary hibernation due to travel bans, however the Foundation is committed to staying present in the communities by continuing critical activities and providing COVID-19 support - handing out disinfectant packages, setting up hand washing stations, continuing nutrition programs, translating information posters into local languages, and keeping in touch with beneficiaries via telephone where possible. Schools in Zambia have closed but Sharon, our Sponsor a Child Coordinator, has been doing her best to communicate with families, students, and teachs over the phone! 

I wanted to also take this time to update you on two recent changes to the structure of sponsorship payments to allow Sharon to offer both you and the students the best support possible. 

Due to inflation, the instability of the Zambian currency, a change to the structure of school fees in the country, and the implementation of a new system to allow us to grow the program, sponsorship fees have increased. Please find the new sponsorship costs below and please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Primary School (grades 1 – 7) = $315
Junior School (grades 8 – 9) = $420
Secondary School (grades 10 – 12) = $455

The second update is that all sponsorship payments will now be made on GlobalGiving. In the past, we have offered a variety of ways to make payments however to keep things centralized and organized, we will now only be using the one platform. Please use the above link to make your annual payments, and again, if you have any questions or concerns about this, we would be more than happy to discuss things further. 

Your support means so much to us and we look forward to continuing this journey with you. To say thank you, we wrote a little song for you: Watch the video here!

Kind regards,

Sarah Nielsen
