Richard Mfula, Patrick Kaputa – Access to Quality Early Education for All Children

Date grant awarded: November 11, 2019

Access to Quality Early Education for All Children, located in Nchelenge district of Luapula province of Zambia, supports quality educational opportunities of the most vulnerable children in remote areas. Managed by community volunteer teachers, this project will establish conducive learning classrooms to youth.

Richard Mfula – the project leader – shares, “I was inspired by the overwhelming number of children in this community without access to early learning centers in the area since the government re-introduced early childhood education in all public schools which has not been implemented fully yet.” The grant fund will help purchase 100 pockets of cement to begin the construction of a classroom block for the children.
