Project: Science lab
The community of Mkasanga is building a science classroom for secondary school students and they need laboratory equipment: microscopes, test tubes, test tubes, chemicals, etc.
Zambia is a country where only 41.5% of the population under 24 is in school… and there is a 55.2% illiteracy rate among young women. Can a country change or develop in this way? What is the real change Zambia needs? At SOGOLO ONG, we are committed to the development of education with a joint approach that is sustainable over time. In Zambia, pre-university education is structured in four cycles:
- Infant education: 3 courses.
- Primary: 7 courses (Grade 1-Grade7).
- Secondary: 2 courses (Grade 8-Grade 9).
- Upper Secondary: 3 courses (Grade 10-Grade12)
Two years ago, the school in Mkasanga, close to the perimeter of the South Lwanga National Park, only had the first two cycles and students soon stopped studying. In 2018, a school in Majadahonda, Benito Pérez Galdós School, financed an electric generator from its Educational Community to be able to connect the computers given to them by the Bill Gates Foundation. As a result, the school was able to adapt to being a secondary school, as it was able to take the official secondary school exams. In this way, the children could continue their education without leaving their parental homes.
SOGOLO now wants to take a further step in the training of young boys and girls at the Mkasanga School so that they can continue their secondary education and escape from poverty. This is a collaborative project: they have asked us for material to equip a science laboratory for 30 students. The Community of Mkasanga, coordinated by its director Mr. Damiano, has started the construction of the adobe bricks for the building where the laboratory will be installed. Now we, with your donations, will try to make this science project a reality.
