Football Program

Soccer field during afternoons:

Volunteers will work with us to play, coach if possible, and also to hang out with the children at the football pitch. The boys and girls from the under resourced communities are from 7 to 25 years old, the majority of them being out of school due to high school fees which their parents cannot afford to pay them. This program aims to keep them stay away from drugs and other illicit activities in the unsafe communities!

FFA: New Hope Wave has also a club that is in the league with the teams for boys from 17-25 years as well as the girls’ team from ages from 13-18 years and have also a number of boys’ teams starting with the Under 10, Under 12, Under 14 and Under 17 years running! The boys in the team in the league start their games from April to December as well as the girls team they are all competing to go to higher leagues.


Elderly Care and Support Program

New Hope Waves is working with an Old People Home where 41 old people live from different backgrounds with challenged situations such as abandoned by their families, poverty situations in the rural areas then migrate to the city ending up of being stuck in lives then get adopted in the home. Volunteers can provide them with care and support and will be able to help out with the tasks at the home such as serving them with food, clean the surrounding, cutting their nails, cleaning their rooms as well as having quality time to share stories and experiences etc.


ICT Program

New Hope Waves is running a small group computers lessons for young people who want to learn skills in ICT and have access to technological opportunities. The trainings depends on the availability of international skilled IT volunteer trainer(s), as well as the fact that only few computers that we have in the office space are available. Volunteers can assist young people to learn how to start a computer, typing, basic Microsoft word, excel and other more basic computer skills.

Education and Skills Development Fundraising



The Education and Skills Development Centre for New Hope Waves in Livingstone, Zambia

1. The New Hope Waves Education Academy

The Preschool and Primary school (Education Academy) which will aim at providing free basic and quality education to vulnerable children in the nearby communities such as Ngwenya, Namatama, Zecco, Burton, Mbita, Malota and Maramba


The Education Academy will be providing education for children from 2 years to 15 years starting from Preschool and Grades 1-7 whose aim to make children to learn how to read and write in English as well as excel in the higher education levels.

Mission Statement: Educate, Inspire and Empower Vulnerable Children for the Better Future

Vision Statement: New Hope through an informed, educated and responsible crop of citizens.

The Education Academy will work with the children who are out of school as more than 3 out of 5 children between the ages of 2-15 years are not in school so we will provide preschool and primary education from grades 1-7 all for free so that we will ease the burden of education in the vulnerable families that can afford only one meal in a day and most of the parents are not employed and some of the children are orphaned by HIV/AIDS been cared by their old poor grandmothers who cannot afford to pay for their education and provide their proper meals.


The Education Academy will accommodate more than 300 vulnerable and orphaned children who will have basic education from the most vulnerable communities to improve the literacy levels and acquire quality education for a better future.


The statistics about Zambian population is that 16 million live in the country, 86% live in poverty under less than a dollar per day and 41% of the children are malnourished so we will also provide school feeding program as most of the children are coming from very poor homes and community that cannot afford decent meals, the feed program will improve their performance of children in class as well as to curb children staying away from school as their guardians cannot affordable to snack for them at school and an early meal at home.


The Education Academy will be a harbor of children activities that are aimed at improving the education and a safe environment during some afterschool programs that will create a defined future for the community of children to an informed and productive society geared to break the cycles of poverty, disease and social challenges


The Education and Skills Development Centre intends to start its operations by March, 2019 at the location to be designated within Maramba as we have been offered a conducive space to purchase and below is the property that we need for our Education Academy so accessible for the vulnerable children in Maramba and so close to the most vulnerable communities such as Ngwenya, Namatama, Zecco, Burton, Mbita and Malota.



The Education and Skills Development Centre needs US$ 20,000 to purchase this property so please you can see some of the photos above so we need you to share our humble request with your families, friends and people who have a heart to change the face of our vulnerable community through education.


The Education Academy currently need passionate people who can help us to fundraise money to purchase and own this property for vulnerable children so that we will turn into our Education Academy as when we have own space it will be ease the pressure of renting a property which will be expensive for us to provide free and quality education as well as motivate or pay our staff to work well with the vulnerable children. We will work to renovate it and put all the equipment in place for children to learn and excel in a better and well maintained space.


Education and Skills Development centre is so accessible for the vulnerable children and young people in Maramba and so close to the most vulnerable communities such as Ngwenya, Namatama, Zecco, Burton, Mbita and Malota.


2. Skills Development Centre

We will run both formal and non-formal skills development education and work-place skills in order to equip the youth of our community with the appropriate skills to gain employment or move onto higher education. Our Skills development will accommodate more 100 young people from the most vulnerable communities in Livingstone, Zambia

Our communities are faced with high levels of illiteracy, lack of workable skills, unemployment as well as poverty. These effects are due to lack of money for school fees to attend school, gain appropriate skills training and engage in opportunities to empower themselves out of the challenges they face.

We place a high emphasis on education, skills development, and sporting activities. We hope the Community Centre will provide the community with opportunities to acquire such skills. As we currently have no Centre of our own, completing the development of this project will bring about immense positive change to the most vulnerable young people in our community.

  • The plan of the property that will be turned in Education and Skills Development Center
  • The property will also have a skills development center where vulnerable young people who drop out of school or completed high school education but cannot afford high vocational fees we will acquire hands on skill such as tailoring, ICT, carpentry, catering, travel and tourism, gardening and basic business startups & entrepreneurship
  • Our organization is a small and newly-established organization aimed at developing the education and skills in our children and young people who need to acquire the basic education and skills that will improve their lives.
  • Our organization is in the desperate need to purchase a property that will provide free education in the area where most of our children and young people cannot afford to attend school due to the high school and vocational fees.
  • The Education and Skills Center will in future also provide an effective school feeding program, as most of the children are coming from very poor homes and communities that cannot afford daily and healthy, nutritious meals.
  • The property will also host a variety of indoor games for children and young people, as well as provide recreational opportunities to interact, share ideas and information to develop their community and their country.
  • The property will have a library which will be shared amongst our school students and members of the community, which will help to develop reading/literacy skills and broaden their understanding of life, the world and its environment, as well as a cultural group which will happen weekly in the Library for children and young people to interact with international community members for inclusive development.
  • The Education and Skills Center will also provide afterschool programs such as workshops and trainings in a number of topics such as Art and creative activities, Hygiene, Water and Sanitation, Gender Equability, HIV/AIDS Prevention, Care and Support, Lifeskills and Environment etc.
  • The property will also host meetings and workshops for the basis of community development where community members and leaders may come together and share and discuss a variety of community issues.
  • The Education and Skills Centre will harbor a variety of activities that are aimed at improving the education, health and social economic status of our community, with the overall hope to create a defined future for the community of our children, empowering them to break the cycles of poverty, disease and social challenges.
