It’s exam time at Pizz School in Monze and all the children are studying hard (we hope)! But it isn’t always easy to study when you have other household chores to do when you get home from school. Then when things go quiet and you have time to get your books out, it’s already too dark to read or write…
The light fades early evening every day in Zambia and it gets very dark. With no streetlamps and many homes without electricity, the children at Pizz school in Monze, struggle to study in the evenings. We’ve heard stories from children who have had near misses with candles, like falling asleep with the candle still burning. Solar lamps provide a safer alternative.
Last year we raised funds to purchase over 100 solar lamps for children in Zambia. Due to school closures and lockdowns, it took some time for our partners at Pizz School to purchase and distribute these. But thanks to your support, children like Matthew (pictured above) will be able to study in the evenings now. The reach of this support extends much further than one child though - many children study together and other family members in the household also benefit from the lamps.
Making it possible to study at home is another way that we can support children to reach their full potential.
