“Education is one of God’s greatest gifts to a child because you cannot take education away from them.” – Esther
Esther has always had a passion for education. She is the first in her family to finish high school, a dream that is only achieved by 8% of Zambian children. Her parents were unable to help her pay for college, so she worked hard and paid her own way. Esther understands the barriers to education in Zambia because she was once a student and struggled against challenges like paying school fees, walking long distances to school, overcrowded classrooms, untrained teachers, and lack of learning materials. “I enjoy helping the children and knowing that they will have education in their lives. Education is one of God’s greatest gifts to a child because you cannot take education away from them.”
Esther knows that education is one of the most important investments a country can make in its children and in its future sustainability. African Vision of Hope teachers care for their students as if they were their own children: providing guidance, love, and emotional support. These children are vulnerable or orphaned and view their teachers as family.
