Joining hands to expand primary education for the children of Zanzibar
Fathers And Kids Camping is partnering with CR HOPE Foundation to make a positive impact on the lives of children in Kizimkazi, Zanzibar.
Around 140,000 children in Zanzibar between the ages of 4 and 15 are out of school. Poverty, lower educational attainment of the household head and living in a rural areas are all factors associated with a higher likelihood of 4-15 year olds being out of school.
Fathers And Kids Camping has partnered with CR HOPE Foundation to expand their existing school, Seeds of Hope, and to double its capacity. This partnership, entitled Impact Zanzibar will be rolled out in 4 phases:
Laying the concrete foundation for 5 additional classrooms
Building the 5 classrooms along with wash basins and boys/girls bathrooms
Building a world-class playground for all the kids
Installing a rooftop solar PV system to power the school
The budget for these 4 phases is $100,000. This represents the most ambitious undertaking in the 11-year history of Fathers And Kids Camping. But as we have shown in the past, we always find a way to reach our goal.
We are grateful to all those who can help us cover the costs of the construction and playground materials so that our Impact Zanzibar team can then carry out the works on the ground with the help of a local contractor during 11-15 May, 2021.
