who you help:
You help 600 children, grades one though nine, at the Dag Hammarskjöld School in Ndola. They need schoolbooks, computers and other necessary school supplies.
how you help:
Your first donation went towards purchasing schoolbooks. The first installment included the purchase of English books for grades three through nine while first graders received books in creative technology and in social development studies.
The District Education Board Secretary and the school principal have provided these requests while our partner, the Ndola-Mukuba Rotary club, purchased and distributed these items.
We hope to build on this to further help the school. But, before we embark on a larger and more encompassing list, we hope to make yet another assessment visit. This way, we can include more substantial items that may require attention. In the meantime, we are in contact with the school to focus on smaller items before generating a larger list of goals.
We are partnering with the Ndola-Mukuba Rotary Club. Having collaborated with them in the past two years during trips to Zambia in a rotary capacity, we have developed a strong bond and mutual respect. We are honored that they are willing to partner with us.
Anne-Catherine from You Assist and her husband traveled to Zambia in June 2013 and August 2014. They were part of a larger Rotary team that visited schooled in the Ndola region to assess water and sanitation needs. A 2018 trip is envisaged.
