Now more than ever, students in Zambia are needing support to continue their education. This holiday season, our goal is to cover 4 sponsorship fees, which provides 4 students a quality education in Zambia.
In Zambia, 43% of students complete Primary School, 55% pass Grade 9 and only 33% finish Grade 12. Free Haven Community Iniative's mission is to change these statistics and provide a well deserving opportunity.
Our mission is to provide 4 students an equal and quality education in Southern Province, Zambia. Many of our students come from very challenging backgrounds where families and parents are not financially capable of paying school fees. Of our 130 students, over half have either been orphaned, or abandoned by their parents. Many of the students are in the care of aunts, uncles, or grandparents.
FHCI knows the importance of keeping these students in school and in addition to covering the cost of students’ school fees, the sponsorship program provides vulnerable students in grades one through twelve with: a uniform, school shoes, a school sweater to keep them warm in the colder months, a backpack containing all of the essential school supplies, extra lessons before and after school three times a week so they can receive individualized attention as well as counseling, and a fifty-five-pound bag of food so that they do not have to go to school with an empty stomach.
