Appleseed offers extra lessons for students in grades 1-12. Few children do well in Zambian schools without extra support in the basics of reading, writing and mathematics. We are dedicated to making the Zambian curriculum more accessible by teaching strong reading and math skills to children in grades 1 through 6. Tuitions at the secondary level are focused on studying for the grades 7, 9 and 12 government exams.
$16.00/month (160 kwacha) provides 3 one hour tutoring sessions and lunch 5 days per week. ($180 per year- per child)
There are currently 32 scholarship children in the program. We are seeking funding to sustain this scholarship program and ultimately expand it to more children whose families cannot afford the service. In addition to supporting children of the Bauleni community, RHO Appleseed also supports 3 tutors in growing their businesses. They are able to advertise their services to non-Appleseed members, who are able to pay for services, thereby earning more money for themselves while aiding in the effort to make RHO Appleseed self sustaining.
We are also seeking funding for other programs including Secondary Student Sponsorship, Lunch Service, Sports, Pre-School and the Arts. Look for further information on those programs!
