MEAL PROGRAMS

Food is scarce and hunger in Zambia is widespread, made worse by an ongoing drought. The Kwasha meal program is vitally important for each student’s ability to learn. The yearly cost of the meal program presently is $7000 which will provide each student one (and possibly their only) meal every school day for one year. Only $20 will provide the meals for one student for an entire year.

FARM

The Kwasha farm contributes to the nutritional value of the meal program and also to the sustainability of the school through the sale of farm produce. Supplies needed for the farm to produce the yield necessary to accomplish these goals:

Vegetable Seeds $275, Trees $20, Fertilizer/Equipment $480, Chicken Coop $800

HEALTH AND WELLNESS

Disease, especially malaria, is always present and results from the effects of poverty, poor nutrition, and sub- optimal living conditions. In children, early treatment is vitally important and effective. An Emergency Fund will make it financially possible to receive timely, effective treatment. Physical activity is another important aspect of health for the students. Participation in sports activities has many benefits.

Emergency Medication Fund: $200

Sports Equipment/Sports Uniforms: $500

Teachers
CONSTRUCTION

It is imperative that the school provide clean water for the recently constructed bathrooms for flushable toilets, for hand washing, and for cooking and cleaning. A new deep well will be dug in Fall, 2020 and needed is a pump and supportive framework for water tanks $2000

Teachers
CAPITAL EXPENDITURES

Ultimately, with the growing population in the area and the need for Kwasha to expand education through the 9th grade, there will need to be additional classroom space
