WISE Zambia embodies a number of values which have, to date, enabled us to provide scholarships to 317 students since 2014—205 are still in secondary school, 39 have graduated, and 19 have gone on to college! In January 2020, we will add an additional 50 students, with 250 will be in our secondary scholarship program. WISE Zambia will have 24 aspirational youth in college, nursing and trade schools in 2020.
There are so many more young people in remote villages, beyond our reach financially and physically, who deserve the same chance as the students we’ve already served. With your help, we can reach those who are still hoping that WISE Zambia will find them and help them pursue an education beyond 7th grade — and keep the young girls from early marriages.
Please help us support these students and women in their drive for self-sufficiency and independence. They have abilities and dreams that will take them far if only they are given the opportunity.
