ZAM127 Training of teachers

project description

In the rural areas of Zambia more than 50% of the population is illiterate. Whoever cannot read, cannot find a job easily. For those people, it will be hard to break the downward spiral of poverty. Zambian Mission Support supports 20 schools in the surroun­dings of Petauke. Volun­teers of several villages are getting acquainted with educa­tional skills. They learn to teach the local language to their own children.

why this project?

Marianne Hendriksen was sent to Zambia in 2007 by the congre­gation of Nunspeet, Nether­lands. She is working for the Zambian Mission Support, which aims at sharing the Gospel, agricul­tural training and education. Last year Marianne asked the deputies for financial support for the education project. Commu­nities who want to start a school, can ask assis­tance from Marianne and her team. The team provides trainings and education packages.

impact?

Throughout the years the project already arranged the beginning of 35 schools. On a regular basis new schools are started. However, sometimes a school cannot continue to function, since parents do no contribute anymore to the school. Not only children profit from these projects. Also the community / village as a whole can profit, when all people work together for the school.
