Pizz Zambia Update November 2022

Children at Pizz school, where changes are afoot.
Children at Pizz school, where changes are afoot.

Things are changing at Pizz school in Monze… HATW has always funded Pizz as a private school as there was not an alternative. Schooling in Monze was not free and fees were prohibitive to many vulnerable children going to school. Once fees were paid then a uniform was required, as well as school shoes and schoolbooks. All of this was simply out of the question for many of the children.

Following a visit in May, we learned that things are changing in Zambia with a new President bringing in education reforms, aiming to make education accessible to all. Progress can be seen already but of course, there is a long way to go.

We are currently working with the local department for education to enable the school to change status from private to hopefully becoming a community school. This will secure government support for paying for teachers and the costs of running the school. The project will benefit from improved sustainability due to government funding as well as increased participation from parents. We are excited about the potential for much greater community involvement and the benefits this will bring.

We will be visiting again early next year to see how things are going and to determine how we can best support the children and the school to develop and thrive. I look forward to sharing more news then.

Thank you for your support.

Changes will see improved sustainability for Pizz.
