Every child deserve to receive education but unfortunately this is not evident for all children. This includes children in the community of Kamimbi in Zambia. Due to long distances, the government schools are impossible or difficult to reach for many children and the nearest state school is overcrowded. This is why the Liberi foundation decided to build a school in 2018. A complete primary school has since been completed in 2022.
The Liberi school is a private school and offers a secure learning environment for children who otherwise have little to no access to schooling. Through the Liberi school children are given the opportunity to develop and grow, which increases their future prospects
The Liberi school ensures that kids will be able to develop and be effective in the society of tomorrow. They offer good education with reduced class sizes, the right textbooks and materials, well-trained teachers and after-school training. There are 10 classes in the school ranging from preschool and kindergarten to grade 7, and various facilities such as sanitary buildings, canteen, offices, computer room, library, playground with equipment, playing field and their own vegetable garden.
The enthusiasm of the children and the motivation of the staff ensure that the Liberi Foundation continues to strive for a better future for the community.
Liberi has noticed that there is still a significant level of illiteracy and low literacy in the community. Although parents recognise the importance of education for their children and are keen to send them to school for a better future, it turned out that many parents themselves could not read or write. Liberi became aware of this when parents did not attend meetings organized by the school, despite teachers sending notes home with the children.
To address this need, Liberi conducted a survey through their contacts. It was found that adults are highly motivated to learn. They want to learn how to read, write, do arithmetic and acquire basic knowledge. In response, Liberi provides two sessions of education for more than 60 women and men facilitated by the teachers of the Liberi School.
