"The influence of a good teacher can never be earsed."

“The closing of the schools in Zambia puts Destiny Community School financially in a very difficult situation. Our only source of income are the school fees. But now that school is closed, no one will pay school fees anymore. If no one pays school fees, how can we manage to pay our teachers?"
Reverend Peter Kaunda, Executive Director

our teachers

Our teachers are the key figures at Destiny Community School. They play a vital role in the learning process of our learners.  Every day they teach with great passion to equip our pupils with all the skills they need to shape their own future, to live a self determined life and to break the cycle of poverty.

our struggle

Despite their hard work, our teachers earn as little as 60 USD a month. But it is this little that they rely on to pay rent, buy food and take care of their families. As much as the teachers depend on their monthly salary for basic needs, the school relies on them in order to keep operating. Without our teachers there would be no Destiny Community School.
But as contributions from the community are very little, we struggle financially every month. By supporting Destiny Community School you help our school to keep operating and providing quality education to the vulnerable children of our community and at the same time you support the teachers and their families.
