Family Legacy Zambia
At Family Legacy schools in Bauleni, Chaisa and Kasangula compounds, Edulution is offering our program to 900 children from Grades 4-9. Each child is receiving 3 hours of lessons each week beginning with our alpha course. Learners are able to work at their own pace, supported by our coaches while they strive towards reaching foundational maths excellence. Family Legacy has been the sponsor partner since January 2017. Solar power is utilised at all 3 centres as the grid supply is not dependable meaning our programs can continue anywhere or anytime no matter the circumstance.

“I think the program is very effective and these kids are learning a lot. I’m sure after a short period of time, everyone will be doing well in mathematics!” – Teacher, Mr. Chigumbu
“I like Edulution a lot because it gives me the opportunity to learn new topics I haven’t yet done in class.” – Student, Judith
“With committed and well trained coaches, I believe nothing is impossible. Together we are the change tribe and we can turn over good results.” – Edulution Coach, Patricia
Bauleni was our first Family Legacy centre opening in early 2016. Learners attend weekly 3 hour Edulution sessions in the afternoon or morning when they are not in their regular classes. Due to irregular and frequent load shedding from the nation’s power supply, Bauleni coaches use solar power to charge their tablets daily. Bauleni was our first urban centre to go completely off grid.
Chaisa, located in one of our most vulnerable communities in Lusaka was our last Family Legacy centre to open in 2016. This centre is a primary school and we cater to learners as young as Grade 4 for 3 hours per week.
Legacy Academy in Kasangula is a secondary school located in Lusaka north. Kasangula coaches direct learners to the Edulution playlists after they have sat their baseline tests. This focuses them on exercises and videos that will help them improve and ultimately pass their next test 4 months later.
Grades 5 and 6 students from the Family Legacy school in Chainda are partaking in one of Edulution’s first maths/literacy centres in Zambia. 150 learners receive our traditional maths foundational program 3 days of the week and an additional 150 learners log in to the IXL literacy program 2 days per week. The program is well supported by staff members and there is a ton of learning going on!
Mtendere Legacy Academy was the last of 5 Family Legacy centres to open. In July 2017, close to 300 learners were registered. Like Chainda, Mtendere is a maths/literacy cross centre with half the learners participating in the maths program and the other half in the IXL literacy program. At this centre, we have received very encouraging support from the staff for the Grade 4 – 6 learners whom are on the program.
