New Hope and the Future for young people in Zambia
Change young people to Change the Future of Africa
Empowering children, youth and their families with skills, knowledge, educational and talent
enhancement opportunities for the upliftment of the community through improved living conditions for a hopeful future and protecting the environment.
Our target age groups are in two categories one; for children are from 7-14 years and for youth from 15-35 years who make up 70% of Zambia.
New Hope Wave is working with mainly three schools which are:
1) A Community School with more than 700 pupils from the ages of 2 years -15 years from very underprivileged Preschool to Grade 7. Volunteers intended to work with them will be teaching English, Math, Art and other more creative subjects.
2) A private Preschool with children from the ages of 2 years to 9, from Preschool to Grade 2 with more than 60 pupils at this school. Volunteers can help in teaching these children English, Math, Songs and Dances and in the general cleaning and child care.
3) Another private Preschool with children from the ages of 3 years to 5, from Preschool with more 50 pupils at this school. Volunteers can help in teaching these children English, Math, Art and Dances and in the general cleaning and child care.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
“There is no better gift that you give vulnerable children than giving them education and safe space to grow in all spheres of their lives” by Auldridge Chibbwalu, President and Founder of New Hope Waves
