“The student-to-teacher ratio is often 50:1…”


UNICEF reports that 68% of rural and 32% of urban orphans in Zambia are not enrolled in school. Even those who are fortunate enough to have adult supervision by relatives are often denied education and made to work full-time. Zambia ranks 22nd in the world for children not attending primary school.

Even when families do have the means to pay school fees, the schools often don’t have the resources to create an environment of learning. Some schools don’t have books or writing materials. The student-to-teacher ratio is 50:1, making it difficult for teachers to have an impact on their students.
