Learn More About How This Effort Started
Last year we began to envision helping the school teachers and students. Although we first envisioned the support as scholarships for individual children, after a year of trying to work it out, we realized it was just too complicated.
So rather than try to match an individual donor to an individual child, we are simply calling on good-hearted donors to join us with a monthly recurring donation that will fund the school budget. We've started at Needs Care School, and as we grow, we’ll add more schools.
Meet Just A Few Of The Teachers And Students
What Your Support Helps Provide
Due to a lack of funds, the teachers at Needs Care receive just half of the monthly salary as an average school teacher in Lusaka. With your help, we’ll get them where they need to be.
School Lunch Program
Combined with the efforts at the 3 Esthers Farm, we are striving to feed all the children at the school 5 days a week. Without your help, it won’t be possible.
Managing a school with almost 1,500 children is a huge challenge. With your help, we’ll have the maintenance and repair budget we need to keep the school working well.
The cooking staff, night guards, and janitorial team all work hard to support the school. With your help we’ll ensure they have good jobs and fair wages.
After School Programs
With your help we’ll provide after school clubs and programs to ensure the kids have something safe and positive to do. Things like scouting clubs and girls groups.
Supplies & Resources
With your help we’ll ensure the teachers have the supplies they need to teach the kids.
The dream of the Needs Care staff is to expand from 1-7 grades to offering a full secondary school with grades 8-12. Until then, we can assist deserving students with scholarships to ensure they attend secondary school. These are awarded based on academic merit & administered in collaboration with the secondary schools they attend.
