A highly educated nation remains critical in reducing intergenerational poverty and inequality as it empowers communities with skills and expertise that will help them in ensuring household income and subsequently national revenue and wealth.
We have therefore partnered with various organizations in ensuring that communities are educated through the provision of support to various projects.
Strong Girls, Strong Zambia Campaign
The Bank has partnered with World Vision on the Strong Girls, Strong Zambia Campaign where 15,000 girls will be withdrawn from early marriages and empowered with education and other life skills.
Keep Her in School Campaign
In partnership with the Examinations Council of Zambia through a local NGO, My Zambia, My Responsibility the Bank supported the Keep Her in School Programme, which was aimed at providing menstrual supplies to girls in examination classes. 11,000 girls in grades 7, 9, 12 benefited from the program.
Through our partnership with Bupilo Foundation, Zanaco provided menstrual supplies to school girls in Central Province as a way of reducing period poverty as well as ensuring that young girls stay in school.
Lead Me Back Foundation, Bag pack donation
We believe that education should not be limited to girls alone and thus in partnership with Lead Me Back Foundation, we provided school bags, books, shoes and other school supplies to pupils in Lusaka and the Copperbelt in partnership with the Lead me Back Foundation
