SPONSOR MODEL

Pay for Progress

PestalozziWorld holds a significant place with Edulution as a flagship sponsor partner. We began a pilot program in January 2014 at Pestalozzi Education Centre. When we saw its potential, we tested our first Mobile Learning Centre at PestalozziWorld’s Kasisi boarding site 30km from Lusaka. 

In May of 2016, we launched our programme in Luangwa Valley where 1800 rural children are registered on the program. In March 2017, more rural sites were opened in Lundazi District located in Zambia’s Eastern Province. Many PestalozziWorld alumni have joined our ‘Change Tribe’ as coaches, returning to their rural villages where they were originally selected as children for the PestalozziWorld scholarship. A neat virtuous circle indeed!

LUANGWA

6 centres in the Luangwa Valley mark Edulution’s first completely rural, off-line, off-grid solution. Mwalilila, Mwavi and Kaunga were opened in April, with Mankhokwe and Mangelegele later following. Katondwe opened in January 2017. In total, 1800 children are served from Grades 3-9 in collaboration with local schools, the community and the Ministry of Education.

 

All the tablets and technology for our mobile learning centres are charged by solar power at various hubs, the coaches reach the centres by bicycle, venturing as far as 8km away. The success of this location has provided Edulution with the confidence to expand to other rural areas in Zambia.
