This short video will share some statistics of Zambia, as well as give our vision for Chiziye Secondary School.
Chiziye Secondary School is located in the Eastern province of Zambia and is the only secondary school in nearly a 50 mile radius. With over 17,000 people in this same area, its overwhelming to think one school can manage the task of educating them all.
This school was a community school organized by the people of the surrounding villages, but recently has been granted recognition from the Ministry of Education. This means the school now has government supplied and paid teachers, which is wonderful!
The biggest problem is most of the children live too far to commute daily. There aren't dorms, and the students make the classrooms into sleeping quarters. Many of the students walk to the school on Sunday, and stay until Friday when classes dismiss. They carry with them their clothes, food for the week, cooking utensils and supplies, and any bedding they may need.
We are wanting to come along side this school and this community. Our goal is to build a dorm for the over 70 students that live here throughout the week. While this may be an enormous undertaking, with well over 250 students enrolled each year, it is well worth every effort! This is the only secondary school in the area, and the students from our ministry churches would use this school for secondary education. We are earnestly seeking the Lord to guide and direct us as we seek to bring these plans to fruition.
This project es projected to be $40-45,000 USD.
