Making a difference. One Child at a time. In Zambia, Africa.
by Kelvin Nsekila Mulenga
Hi! I created Tusekwile Imiti Ikula Foundation (TIIF) because I wanted to provide services that help most vulnerable and marginalized children in the Sansamwenje community of Isoka District, Zambia. My district. The goal is serve the education needs in this area. I am a teacher. I teach early childhood education and primary education.
The children in Sansamwenje community have no access to early childhood education and primary education as the community has only one public primary school, which is unworkable for most. Additionally, most parents are small scale farmers whose income cannot sustain the basic costs of their children’s education. Subsequently, less than 3% of community children have obtained early childhood education and primary education which clearly positions our community behind in having capable, educated workforce. In response to these economic challenges, the foundation has established a thatched structure and employed two community teachers who teach the fifty scholarship-supported children who are currently enrolled at TIIF school. TIIF’s focus is the realization of sustainable development in which the foundation seeks to build schools in Sansamwenje community so as to allow more vulnerable children to have access to early childhood education and primary education.
*Tusekwile Imiti Ikula Foundation’s objectives for 2020.*
• Provide 50 vulnerable children from our community with school materials and financial support to pay for their basic school fees to assist them in successfully completing their current grade level.
• Conduct 5 trainings within the next year that are aimed at encouraging children to be de and refrain from practices that do not support development in Mpangala village of Sansamwenje such as: child marriages, substance abuse and prostitution.
• Identify 2 local NGOs involved in championing rural development to approach about programmatic cooperation and collaboration.
• Identify obstacles and positive interventions that our organization can implement to ensure that the children we have committed to support are able to complete their current grade level and pursue their education.
• Begin the building and establishment of an additional school near the community that will equip more vulnerable children with practical survival skills within the next year.
