Precious Kabwe

“We survive with the little my family earns as a street vender. The situation has really gotten very bad and my elder sister failed to continue her studies.”

The third born in a family of seven, Precious stays with her mother and siblings. When she completes school at PEAS secondary, Precious would like to be a medical doctor. Will you help her reach her dreams?

“I am requesting for your assistance because I need to be in school that is the only way I can help to reduce poverty levels in my family as well as in my nation.”

Kasonde Marvel

Kasonde Marvel

Marvel is one of three children in her family who is currently attending secondary school. The cost of one child alone usually greatly exceeds the means of a family such as hers, but her Mother has been working tirelessly to provide the opportunity of education to her children. She is unable to pay for Marvel to attend school, though Marvel’s performance academically is very good. Maybe your family can help theirs!

Priscilla Mulenga

“I would like to be educated, but the challenge is money. Sometimes we don’t eat food, just because of suffering, so help me please.”

Priscilla lives in a rural farming community with her mother and grandparents. The family eats the small amount of food that they produce and doesn’t have enough money to pay for school. She is eager to help and give back to her family and community by completing her education and getting a job. Will you and your family help her?

“I want to be in school so that I could help my family when I complete.”

Mwenya Loreen

Loreen is an academically gifted pupil who was selected to attend the best school in the Province, Laura Girls. She is a single-orphan having lost her Father when she was 7 months old. Her Uncle who had been supporting her Mother and her siblings passed away last year. We have seen that her intelligence will take her far if she is provided with the opportunity to learn.

“When I get home I have to start working hard washing plates, sweeping, and I don’t even have a chance to study. Now that I am in boarding I know that I will be able to read at anytime which will help me do better and be a teacher one day.”

Ruth Mwale

Little Ruth stays with her Grandmother, having been “abandoned” by her parents. We chose to put her in boarding at PEAS, the new non-profit -run school, due to her outstanding academic performance and confident attitude. We also want to provide for her a conducive learning environment, as walking to-and-from school was challenging and she was receiving too much unwanted attention during her commute.

Mutamfya Monday

“I didn’t have enough money to go into grade 8 so I started selling vegetables with my step -mother to save both for school and for food. At home we live without electricity which means we use candles for light and sometimes we don’t have enough money for candles.”

Monday is a grade 10 pupil who was living under the care of her Step-mother after having lost her Mother when she was in grade 4, and her father when she was in grade 6. Her stepmother sells vegetables at the local market but making enough to support her children is tough. As the oldest girl, and the ‘step’ child, she is given the bulk of the responsibilities when it comes to house chores. Due to these challenges we have placed Monday in boarding, to give her a chance to concentrate on her studies, and lift up her family.

“I have always dreamed of being in a boarding school, I promise to try my hardest to make you and my Grandmother very proud.”

Constance Mulenga

Constance is a grade 8 girl who lives with her Grandmother. Her single mom lives in a village far away where she works as a subsistence farmer. We chose her to study in boarding because of her academic and social skills, and as a way to provide her fair chance to study her hardest and also to alleviate some of the challenges that her Grandmother faces in supporting 8 grandchildren at home.
