Rotary has been an amazing partner for the HealthEd Connect schools in Zambia! Providing sturdy desks and benches in 2011 soon after the school at Chipulukusu was established, the Kansas City Rotary Club 13 and Ndola (Zambia) Mukuba Rotary Club have continued to bring assets and improvements to both Chipulukusu and Kasompe schools.
In August of 2017, a two-year Rotary proposal effort came to fruition with the arrival of electronic iSchool tablets -- fully loaded with the government curriculum for all 7 grades -- which provided exciting interactive lessons. After participating in a week-long training, the teachers enthusiastically introduced the tablets to the children. Remember, our schools service orphans and vulnerable children. Until now, these tablets had only been available in private schools. Our communities are ecstatic and proudly boast of being the first two community schools in the entire Copperbelt Province that has these tablets. School attendance has already improved with children eager for their turn on these electronic wonders.
Sherri recently had an opportunity to share the results of the iSchool project with the Kansas City Rotary Club 13. Several of the members were so impressed by the programs, they immediately expressed an interest in traveling to Zambia to see for themselves!
