New Hope Waves Pre-school and Primary School

New Hope Waves is running a pre and primary school established in 2019 based in Maramba along Natebe road which is currently having class of the children from ages of 4 – 15 years, from Pre-school education up to Primary education grade 1-7 with more than 150 children from the most vulnerable communities of Ngwenya, Malota, Zecco, Namatama, Burton and Maramba area.

We are free providing quality education to the children from impoverished communities who parents can affordable to pay school fees and other school requirements.

We are working with mainly orphaned and vulnerable children from the communities exposed to high levels of poverty, substance abuse and illiteracy so we work to teach the children to learn how to read and write as well as to excel into secondary education and other further educational opportunities.

The International Volunteers’ teachers will work with the local teachers to teach the children basic English, Maths as well as other creative subjects

We intend to provide school feeding program for the children in the school that are from poor families that cannot afford to have a decent meal so that will help the children to be attentive in class as most of them come to school with empty stomach.

The school activities depends purely on irregular donations of materials, finances and other support from anyone as we are not funded or sponsored so any donations are welcome such as school supplies, funds to support the teachers` allowances as well as school supplies , partnerships and other possible support.

Football/Soccer Program

Soccer field during afternoons:

International 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!

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.

The New Hope Waves Football Club senior team is affiliated to Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) playing in the official league Southern Province of Zambia Division 3 Zone A where they are competing with other 15 teams within the province in distant places.

The Football program has no sponsors at the moment so any possible support is needed such as used soccer equipment, funds to travels and food for the participants and to enable them to qualify to the higher leagues to raise the morale for the participants to aim higher in their lives too

This football program is also aimed to empowering the participants to stay away fromsubstance abuse, break the cycles through talent and skills development so that we will havea well-shaped individuals as well as intend to provide to them with hand on skills trainingand opportunities to better their livelihood and improve their communities.

Elderly Care and Support Program

New Hope Waves is working with an Old People Home where 41 old people live fromdifferent 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.

This elderly people program will need support of materials to support the homes and elderly people in them to have a better lives through provision of food, clothing and bedding etc.

Information Communication & Technology and Skills Development 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.

We are currently having challenges with computers and other tools to run this program well and impact many lives of the vulnerable young people so we need donations of computers, training materials and internet facilities.

We are intending to also introduce some hand on skills development training such as plumbing, carpentry, catering (food production), tailoring and general repairs as well as providing them with tools to earn living out of the program in their communities so we need resource materials as well as partnership with like-minded people and funds to get this program work for young people in football program, communities and the school drop outs.

We are working with a number of programs aimed at empowering young people and their communities to promote youth leadership through skills development that enable youth and their wider communities to curb issues affected them such as substance abuse, HIV/AIDs, Gender Inequality, Poverty and Illiteracy among young people and their wider communities.

We have current and past few partnerships with Erasmus+ Programmes with some European NGOs to promote youth capacity building, motilities and cultural exchanges between the African and European youth programs namely with CESIE (Italian NGO), SCI International networks, CSC Donilo Dolci (Italian NGO), Prism (NGO Italian) and other more also to promote both long and short-term volunteering opportunities in our community based activities.
