Kabwe Futures Community School
CONTESA has funded the construction of several brick built school blocks for orphans/children in Kabwe, some 90 miles north of the Zambian capital Lusaka. CONTESA is seeking donors and grants to expand and fund the operational costs of the school. Classes now include Grades 8 - 10.
The educational programmes are ongoing with an ever expanding pupil total
Charity information: CONTESA
The feeding & complementary educational programmes are geared to help mitigate the huge problems that orpahns and disavantaged children face as they have no food and cannot afford to attend school.
Provide orphans & disadvantaged children with basic education in a very poor and deprived area. The educational programme has been built on the back of the successful feeding programme, please see the CONTESA website www.contesacharity.co.uk). The John Stanbury school block has been completed as has the new science block, CONTESA now needs assistance with teachers allowances, books, educational equipment & consumables.
Bring into the educational system orphans and disadvantaged children who would otherwise be excluded
Activities» Support the ongoing educational programmes & activities of the Futures School (last year the school achieved 100% Grade VII passes).
What success will look like
Success will be the numbers of children successfully completeing their primary and secondary education.
Will increase the number of orphans & disadvantaged children in education and those successfully completing their education who in turn will be able to assist those less fortunate. This will bring hope and improved living conditions to a very deprived community.
The risks of operating in developing countries to lack of reliable local support, sudden policy changes etc. these we are aware of and have factored into our support and local partner organisations.
Through our newsletters, website and annual report or through specific reports for large donors.
