Making sure education is inclusive
Gabriel, 25 years old
“I remember my painful childhood years when everyone saw me as a burden. I didn’t have friends to play with but my grandmother showed me love.
Life was a real challenge for us and I believe that’s why my brothers stopped school and my sisters got married early. I was serious about school because I saw it as my only hope out of misery.
When I completed school I applied for a three year Primary Teacher Diploma Course and was put on ZOA support. I want to become a teacher and help my family and my fellow people with disabilities.”
Keeping girls in school
Diana, 18 years old
“I was 12 when I started my periods. I was afraid and I didn’t know what to do. I thought there was something wrong with me and I stopped going to school. I used to miss class until my period was finished because I didn’t have pads.
The menstrual hygiene training taught me about periods, good hygiene practices, how to use reusable pads and that I can still go to school.
The difference is that now my attendance in class has improved.”
Supporting tertiary students
Hazel, 20 years old
“I’m grateful to ZOA for coming into my life and helping me pursue my dream. I’m a second year student of Kafue Institute of Health Sciences and Research.
Just recently I had a nice experience at the University Teaching Hospital, Zambia’s most prestigious hospital where I did a number of placements in various departments. The attachment was for three months.
ZOA, I don’t know what words to use to say thank you for the job you are doing. You are really changing our lives. Thank you so much.”
Your help can support children through primary and
secondary school, provide nutritious school meals so pupils
aren’t learning on an empty stomach and support those that can
through tertiary vocational training. We provide a holistic
approach so also provide mental health support and other inputs
