One of the primary projects is providing access to quality education to the most vulnerable and marginalized children at our school. The school provides education to less privileged children, most of whom come from low-income families. The foundation has been able to provide a conducive and safe learning environment that has helped reduce the dropout rates in the school.
Addressing the impact of coronavirus through numeracy and literacy learning recovery programs through play-based learning is another project that the foundation is currently undertaking. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone globally, and children in Zambia are no exception. With schools closed for extended periods, children missed out on crucial learning opportunities. The foundation is addressing this gap by providing numeracy and literacy learning recovery programs through play-based learning.
The foundation is building the early childhood learning center. The center will provide early childhood education services, focusing on the holistic development of children aged between 3-5 years. The center will provide a conducive learning environment that will nurture children's physical, emotional, and cognitive development.
We are trying to introduce the feeding program to the pupils so as to help them attend classes without difficulties. Malnutrition is a significant issue in Zambia, and it affects many children's ability to attend school. The foundation aims to address this issue by introducing a feeding program that will provide a nutritious meal to all pupils daily.
Lastly, the foundation is intending to build an ablution block and improved water mechanism system at school. Access to clean water and proper sanitation is a fundamental right that every child deserves. The foundation is committed to providing the pupils with a clean and safe environment that will enhance their learning experience. As a non-profit organization dedicated to making a positive impact in our community, the Tusekwile Imiti Ikula Foundation is always on the lookout for ways to strengthen our partnerships and expand our reach.
