BENEFITING: Onestar Foundation
It is with great interest that we fundraising for topping crue foundation, open learning community school. This school is located in the shanty compound of Libuyu Township Livingstone District Zambia Africa. We are hereby humbly fundraising for 100 chairs, 100 tables, 4 electric heaters and 4 electric fans at total cost of $ 600. Right now as you can see from the photos and the video the children at the school are learning on the floor as you can see them sitting on the floor while learning. This is not health and good especially that its winter or cold season in Zambia sitting on the floor is a challenge and a number of them have started developing coughs. Therefore this is the main reason why we have organized this fundraising so that we can be able to purchase the chairs and tables needed so that the kids can learn comfortably and in a good environment. The four heaters will be placed in our two classrooms and used to warm the classrooms especially during cold season like now. Then the fans will be used during hot summer or hot season as it gets very hot especially that our classes don’t have ceiling boards. Once children are learning in a conducive atmosphere it will enhance there concentration and also motivate them to be coming regularly therefore will reduce to a large extent the percentage of absenteeism. As you can see in the video and photos the kids are tightly sitting next to each other, hence they make a lot of noise during lessons, but with the coming of chairs and tables space will be created between each child and this will enable the teacher to manage the class properly. These are vulnerable children who are eight orphaned, disabled or whose parents cannot afford to take them to government or private schools. Hence our foundation provides free inclusive education to all of them where both the disabled and non-disabled are placed in one class. And when they reach a certain grade which is not available at our community school we stream them into government schools with continued support from us. We believe it is the right of every child to be educated and that knowledge is power and that an educated community will translate into a developed community. However given our little limited resources we are unable to achieve this alone hence the reason why we have come to this platform so that we can join hands with every well-wisher out there to educate the next generation of Zambian leaders please come on board and support us. It is my humble appeal that you will find it in your hearts and budget to contribute towards there well fare of these children. Your support will be highly appreciated. We have other concerns but chairs, tables and heaters have been our major challenge especially now during the cold where children are sitting and learning on the floor, with your support iam certain we will manage to overcome the challenge this time. Your favorable response will be highly appreciated.
