Project Educate, a non-profit organization working to improve educational standards and infrastructure in Zambia , runs several drives each semester in partnership with Better World Books. This is a wonderful opportunity for students not only to support Books for Africa but also to help Project Educate raise the much needed funds to support their work throughout Zambia .
The funds generated from last semester’s drives helped to finance the shipment of 400 computers to Mongu! This shipment enabled Project Educate to provide equipment to the Mongu Teacher Training College , the Lewanika General Hospital Nursing School and Project Educate’s newly founded Community Support and Resource Center . Prior to this shipment, the nursing school had a ratio of 1 computer for every 80 students. This figure has drastically improved to 1 computer for every 4 students!
This semester, Project Educate needs your help to finance their latest initiative to ship desperately needed medical and pharmaceutical supplies to Lewanika General Hospital in Zambia ‘s Western province. The hospital is a 600 bed facility that serves an estimated population of 200,000 people.
