Student Sponsorship

Enia was first a beneficiary in our Female Empowerment Programme, part of the pilot Girls Clubs in 2016 and 2017, and then she transitioned to our Student Sponsorship Programme in 2018. She gained acceptance to one of the high achieving all-girls secondary boarding schools in the Eastern Province of Zambia, Katete Girls Boarding School, where she continued with her outstanding academic performance. She graduated high school in 2021 with top grades and volunteered as a mentor on the Female Empowerment Programme in 2022. Enia wished to inspire the girls in the programme to be like her, to lead by example, and prove to them that concentrating on their schoolwork now would lead to high academic returns in the near future. She was employed as an Assistant on the Home-based Education Programme for the first half of 2023 and was accepted to Mulungushi University to pursue a degree in Social Work commencing September 2023, with 100% government bursary.
