WHO WE ARE AND WHY WE CARE

Zamcog’s clear mission to support the most at-risk children in Zambia through education.  For over 17 years, we have worked in the Kabwe town area where ground conditions are the most toxic in the world and in particular, Makalulu – the largest slum area in southern Africa.

OUR WORK

Zamcog is a UK based registered charity focused on raising funds for the relief of poverty through the provision of education in Kabwe, Zambia.

Through the Lubuto Child Care Centre (LCCC), we support children through primary, secondary and tertiary education and training programmes. Further to our funding of education and training programmes, we fund feeding and housing schemes to ensure that our students have the necessary access to the fundamental rights of food and shelter.

We firmly believe that in order to effectively educate children, their well-being must be prioritised first and foremost.

HOW WE WORK

  • We identify an at-risk child
  • We carry out a vulnerability report to assess their most urgent needs.
  • If the child is identified to need educational support, they are invited to the appropriate education programme.
  • Where possible, communication with their parents or guardians begins and is continued throughout their education. This includes progress and school reports.
  • Additional tuition is provided if necessary, during exam years.
  • For students who are most successful in their final exams, we aim to arrange sponsorship to enable them to move on to further education.
    Students not able to achieve the necessary grades to move on to tertiary education are offered the opportunity to take part in 6-12-month skills-based training programmes.
  • Beyond this, opportunities for those who are interested in entrepreneurship are provided by Lubuto Child Care Centre who will review requests and make grants where suitable.
