Nsobe Trust School’s Vision

Developing the Nation’s human resources through education,

personal empowerment and opportunity,

for the glory of God.

The rural people in our area are desperately poor: AIDS, malnutrition and illiteracy are rife. One meal a day of starch and no protein is considered normal. Many children are not encouraged to go to school, but to stay at home to help in the fields, or look after younger members of their families. Pressure on families is increasing with one of the continent’s highest HIV infection rates, extended families now have many more HIV related dependants and orphans to support and feed. There is no way for these people to help themselves.

The only way out of this and the only way forward for Zambia, and our continent as a whole, is through education.

The standard of education is poor in Zambia, especially in the rural areas, with schools few and far between. Children living on our farm and in the surrounding villages have to walk 10kms to the nearest school, a long way for little legs. Because of the large numbers of children in the catchment area for the local government school, and the shortage of teachers or lack of money to pay teacher’s salaries,

classes are held in shifts, so as many children can be accommodated as possible. This means that for Grade one, only 2 hours of taught school are possible per shift. Children from our area must walk for 2 hours to get to school, sit in class for only 2 hours of lessons with 45 other classmates (during which they are tired from their walk and lack of food, it must be so hard to pay attention) – and then walk 2 hours to get home again. This can hardly offer the standard that we want for our children.

It is our firm belief that the private sector in it’s own interest has a role to play in education and that we cannot continually slate government bodies for the lack of quality education as in the meantime the economy is denied valuable human resources and children’s potential is wasted and their lives are committed to poverty while the problem remains unaddressed as blame is passed around. The management of Miengwe Farm Ltd decided that the solution would be to spearhead a drive to undertake these responsibilities with the support of the government, donors and NGO’s.

To offer hope and a chance of an educated future, Nsobe Trust School was started in January 2009, with 16 Pre-school children. We now have 211 children enrolled from Pre-school to Grade 7, taught by 10 dedicated teachers who see teaching as a calling rather than a job and long to break the cycle of illiteracy and poverty, offering these children a brighter future. The children are given

a daily nutritious meal. The children have been flourishing at the school, loving the stimulation and finding out what fun it is to learn and to be a child. It has been a privilege to walk this journey of hope and education with them.

NTS shall grow the pupil numbers and add a grade each year until we have reached Grade 12. Our Vision is to initially provide quality pre-primary, basic and secondary education for the benefit of the local rural children. We wish then to offer tertiary education in the disciplines we are economically involved in: agriculture, aquaculture, tourism, and Wildlife Management– so that students may be equipped with hands-on practical and theoretical skills that will enable them to run projects and help to develop Zambia. We offer a Christ-Centred education, preparing pupils not only for jobs, but for life. Our teachers see their classrooms as their mission field; helping students realise their full potential, facilitating Africans to develop Africa for God.

Formerly Nsobe Trust School has operated out of our house, garden and one classroom block. We have now grown too big for this space. We have been given a piece of land by the community on which to build the Nsobe Trust School Campus, so that the school is within the village communities we are trying to uplift and therefore more accessible to the children. The community have cleared the land and have  assisted with the building. With the help of donors we have 8 classrooms, a very small library, and office and storeroom space. We still need to build another classroom for our Grade 8 class, by January 2017.

We desperately need to access funding to build the next classroom block, a kitchen and canteen, teaching housing and also to assist with resources and teacher salaries.
