The little school project
Love Never Fails
We have just received these beautiful pictures from the secluded school in Chisanza, Zambia and we just wanted to share the good news about their progress. Now they have new school books, pens, papers and chalk from the first of hopefully many donations from Roughdiamonds.dk. In time we hope to help them get more teachers in primarily English, to provide them with tables and chairs so they will be able to have something to learn at, and windows for the school building they are so proud to have build for themselves.
Third and fourth step
The donations from Roughdiamonds.dk continue to be used to purchase basic school materials, and the funding of teachers’ salaries. Most recently, donations have gone towards the purchase of a television and computers for the school.
By acquiring the television, the children are given the possibility of partaking in Zambia’s government’s national educational program on the television channel, Edu TV channel 4. The education program is for pre-schoolers, primary and secondary school. The channel was introduced during COVID-19 in order to provide lessons otherwise not taught during the pandemic’s closing of the schools.
During the pandemic, sanitary measures were installed at the school thanks to the donated money: Hand-sanitizers, face masks, and cleansing agents such as chlorine for disinfection purposes. After the reopening of the school, donations from Roughdiamonds.dk have also been used to purchase shoes and shirts for the children, making for a most colourful everyday display.
Right now, a six months art class is unfolding to stimulate the children’s learning through creativity. Roughdiamonds.dk donations are funding the salary for two teachers and the purpose of various art supplies. By utilizing creative arts as an essential component of the teaching/learning process, the students are exposed to everything from physical education to drama, dancing, singing, gardening and acrylic art painting, all to stimulate the positive growth and development of the students.
Once the course work has been completed, it will be decided if this is something that can be implemented in the educational program in the future.
