Zambia: Education & Skills
The western province where we operate is a region with a very low education rate. The reason can be found both in extreme poverty and the poor state of individual schools. In addition, most children have to travel great distances to get to school.
PIN operates in the Kalabo district, which has an area similar in size to the South Moravian or the Central Bohemian region but with twenty times less inhabitants and only four secondary schools. Schools are built out of clay and lack proper floors and windows; the number of desks and chairs is also inadequate. Therefore, in cooperation with the local teacher-parent association, we are helping to improve infrastructure and equip classes so that local children can have better access to a quality education.
