Project #148 | Interactive Technology Based Learning in Zambia

Our partnership with Impact Network

Nationwide, 38% of Zambian students fail to move on to secondary school after completing the seventh grade. In contrast, over 90% of Impact Network students successfully transition to secondary school, a crucial milestone that will prepare students to earn higher wages as adults. Quality education provides a route out of poverty, which is much needed in Eastern Province, where over half of households live in extreme poverty, making less than 50 cents a day. Almost half of all Zambians are under age 14 so preparing children to succeed is a substantive way to build a more equitable future for Zambia.

One Day’s Wages partnered with Impact Network to provide school materials, teacher salaries, and training necessary to serve upper primary students with the eSchool 360 program, a holistic education model. Locally-hired teachers were each given access to an eLearning tablet and projector to deliver lessons to students, using an interactive, “learn by doing” curriculum. Teachers were also provided weekly coaching and professional development, focused on helping them use the technology and enhance their pedagogical skills.

Meet Solomon

Solomon teaches Mathematics and Science at Kanyelele Community School. He wanted to be a teacher when he was little, but faced countless challenges to do so. His father died the year before he started school, which was a long distance from his home, forcing his mother and sisters to become responsible for taking him to school despite the financial difficulties. Solomon said, “I went to school and successfully graduated despite the challenges. From the time I joined Impact Team I have learned a lot and am grateful for this opportunity.” He reflected on the importance of the project saying, “education helps people earn a living, develop our country at large and work towards the goal of educating our future leaders.”


Thank you for making this possible!

Our movement is grassroots, to us that not only means the work on the ground is led by local leaders with the support of the community, but it also means that we raise the funds for our projects through everyday donors just like you. In addition to all the donors that gave $25, $100, or $250 and the campaigners that ran a race or donated their birthday to raise funds, we also want to thank our generous business, school, and faith sponsors who believed in our work and joined the movement.

If you want to support future projects like this you can make a donation to our children’s education fund.
