Training for New Teachers in Zambia
Roll over image to zoom in
Help train a vulnerable young Zambian, who has lost one or both parents to AIDS, to become a teacher, and bring the gift of education to a whole new generation of children.
In the impoverished, landlocked country of Zambia, the chance for tertiary education can be as scarce as rainfall on the high plateaus. Every year, Cecily's Fund pays for more than 50 of the high school leavers it supported through 12th grade to go on to teacher training college, thus enabling them to find professional jobs as teachers, be self-sufficient, and provide an income for their families.
Cecily's Fund is a non-profit working to improve educational opportunities for orphans and vulnerable children in Zambia. After completing high school with the help of Cecily's Fund, many of these motivated young people want to pass along the gift of education. With your help, Cecily's Fund can help them realize this dream.
Your donation through this Gift That Gives More™ funds teacher training for a Zambian child who has been orphaned by AIDS and wants to become a teacher.
Your contribution of $20, $70 (for one week) or $300 (for one month) helps a vulnerable student by covering all tuition, fees, and living expenses.
Cecily's Fund works with local Zambian partner organizations to enable orphans and vulnerable children to attend primary and secondary school, giving them hope for the future. Cecily's Fund also trains more than 50 graduates each year as peer health educators, giving them the chance to work with school children and so contribute to the fight against AIDS, and supports over 30 orphan school-leavers annually in tertiary education, to study on teacher-training programs.
