You can transform minds and change lives!
From counseling to school clubs, to new ways of learning in the classroom, we are seeing changes in the way students develop and learn.
Wambura has been receiving support from Project Zawadi for her education since the age of 12. She studied at Busore Primary School and Makongoro Secondary School. During her time at Makongoro, she joined the Empowerment Club offered by Project Zawadi Counselors. At these clubs, students learn and practice self-awareness, confidence, leadership, and communication through song, dance, discussion, and play. After completing form four, Wambura made the decision to join the Apprenticeship Program and chose Welding, a traditionally male-dominated trade. Wambura will be the first female welder in the Nyamuswa area. She said:
“Only boys have been working in welding, but I want to be an exception and an example to other girls. Welding is a marketable trade that's why I chose to be trained in this."
