Manyando (MCS) – Supported partially by Zambia’s Child
Secondary and Tertiary Scholarship Program
Students who attend MCS come from families who cannot afford to send them to local Government schools. All students at government schools incur school fees and are required to wear a school uniform.
MCS students number 320 in 2017 and Zambia’s Child sponsors some of the teaching staff along with school operating costs.
Once students complete their primary school education at MCS, most cannot afford to continue on with secondary school education. The average monthly wage in Zambia is $100 Australian dollars, and school fees for 2017 (including uniforms, shoes, school bag, exam fees, stationery and other fees) will total $480 Australian dollars for the year.
Since 2007 members of Zambia’s Child have been supporting ex-MCS primary students through their secondary school education, with some continuing on to tertiary. In 2017, there are 128 students being sponsored through their secondary and tertiary education by Zambia’s Child supporters.
Please contact us if you would like to sponsor a student in Zambia- either at primary level at the Ipalo Christian Community School (ICCS), or in the secondary or tertiary programs. There is always a need for new sponsors every year.
