When I grow up, I want to learn to help the plants grow and be a farmer. Then I will be able to give food to my family and my friends.
A Brighter Future for Zambia | Appeal
Seeing the great need in Saikolo, the community itself initiated Saikolo Community School in 2008. Currently, they have 601 students from grades 1 to 5. The five teachers are all volunteers who are dedicated to seeing breakthroughs in the lives of these vulnerable children.
From 07am to 5pm, the classes divide into groups in order to rotate the massive amount of children through the three small classrooms. There is no electricity, no running water and not enough desks in the school. The children simply pile on the desks or on the floor and the teachers have little space to move around them.
Despite these conditions, the students are eager to learn. They understand that this might be their only chance to get an education. Without a salary, the teachers are willing to teach their students with the uttermost love. “I love to be around the children. Through education, I want to see them have a good future and have the ability to support others,” said Mercy Mutale who has been teaching in Saikolo Community School for seven years.
