Knowledge is the seed to greatness.
We saw a great need to provide quality Christian education not just for our children from the Village of Hope, but also for children in the surrounding communities. Many of these children are not able to read or write or do simple math problems. Resources are scarce for books, learning materials, and educational resources.
School of hope
School of Hope provides education for Preschool to Grade 12. The Zambian curriculum is taught in what are new and innovative ways for Zambia. Learning activities, reading groups, art designed learning, small group work, hands-on projects, and much more provide learning in a brain-based learning environment. Teachers are Zambian trained and participate in on-going professional development as they teach using best practices. School of Hope is striving towards high academic achievement (surpassing the national average on all national exams) as well as vocational learning opportunities. Plans are underway for a vocational training program to teach a variety of skills for future employment.
In rural Zambia, the government is challenged to provide quality education, due to a shortage of classrooms, teachers, and teaching materials and books. In order to provide quality education to prepare our students in the Village for life and jobs, we saw the need to build our own school. Word quickly spread and parents in the surrounding community asked to send their children to School of Hope. The school has been growing by about 100 students each year for the last 7 years.
