AFRICA STRONG, INC. is a newly formed 501(c)(3) non-profit that was established in 2016. Our goal is to provide a better quality of life to the people in Livingstone, Zambia through education, community development, and health promotion.
Africa Strong Inc. was established on the basis of providing education in schools in Zambia. Community schools in Zambia are created for children who cannot afford the government school fees. The schools receive no funding from the government; therefore, volunteer teachers run them. Often times, the teachers are not properly trained or do not show up for class and are under no obligation to because they are not being compensated. Additionally, overcrowding of the school limits students to receive only a few hours of instruction each school day.
Africa Strong Inc. will partner with community schools in Livingstone, Zambia to provide support and improve the school system. The non-profit aims to create more opportunity for the children’s learning. The field managers of Africa Strong Inc. will instruct the additional classes to enhance the student’s learning. Classes will consist of all aspects of education and include the subjects of English, mathematics, physical education, health and HIV/AIDS, life skills, and community development. Teacher development and trainings will also be provided.
