There are ZERO Government run early childhood development centers in Zambia
Preschool readies a child for elementary education and promotes success for the future.
According to UNICEF, only 6% of children between the ages of 3 and 5 attend preschool in Zambia.
Our goal is to make available a safe environment for learning to the most vulnerable children in Zambia. The preschools we provide will be community based to reach the most vulnerable.
Each school will have classrooms along with an office and storage space. An adequate septic system will be installed with access to toilets. Fresh water will be accessible on site through a well and pump system.
Teachers are given training along with classroom tools and supplies to ensure success in the classroom.
The plan is for each preschool to benefit not only the children of the village, but also the community at large. Adult literacy classes as well as training classes for commerce can be held in the classrooms.
From breaking ground to opening the doors with fully equiped classrooms, the cost is approximately $20,000.
The monthly cost to sustain the preschool is approximately $400.00 . This cost covers food for 60+ children and their teachers, teacher salary support, supplies for the classroom and repairs as needed. Your monthly, or one time donation, will help secure a future for these vulnerable children.
