Making Education possible for all children

School is expensive for families that live in financial hardship. There are hidden costs for uniforms, books and shoes for children and a child at school is a child not earning an income to help support its family. Over 60% of Zambia's population live in extreme poverty, and the cost of school is far beyond their means - particularly in households which are headed by orphans and vulnerable children.

Education Support Programme

Cecily’s Fund Education Support Programme focuses on 13 schools in Kitwe district and Luansobe, across Zambia’s Copperbelt province. Our education support programme is designed to build capacity across all the schools so that they are able to provide the best outcomes for children in their care. We do this by working across 4 main areas, strengthening leadership, governance, and accountability in schools; ensuring the best pupil care and support for vulnerable children; strengthening parent engagement; and improving links and support by the Ministry of Education. 


Over our 25 year history, we have enabled 50,000 orphans and vulnerable children go to school and gain the education they need to succeed.

Through our support, orphans like Boyd have progressed into higher education and have thriving careers.

900 girls who had left school returned to complete their education through our DREAMS funded programme.
