We have students in great need of scholarships, and we have opportunities for every donor’s budget. When you meet these needs with a recurring monthly donation you are saying to our students in Zambia - we are dreaming a big dream with you, and for you.

We have four levels of giving designed to meet the needs in Community Schools in Zambia. Donors with an interest in supporting The Essentials, Big Dreams, Transformation, and Visionary development will see opportunities for every budget.

The Essentials - $10 per month provides balanced school-based nutrition targeting the gaps in the growth and development of our students and a school nurse to address health initiatives specific to the needs in each school.

Big Dreams - $25 per month provides school-based nutrition, a school nurse and certified teacher salaries to ensure quality learning, and improved growth and development.

This giving provides our students the best opportunities for success.

Visionary - $100 per month - provides school-based nutrition, a school nurse, certified teacher salaries, school uniforms, school supplies, school infrastructure, furnishings, and an investment in a long-term sustainability enterprise that will provide financial stability for the school far into the future.
