Response Network team in Zambia is gearing up for Academic Works visit next week, November 15.
According to Academic Works assistant sponsorship officer Elizabeth Banda the Swedish delegation will first meet pay a courtesy call on Response Network members of staff in Livingstone before heading to Zimba where they will pass through the District Educational Board Secretary’s office for a brief briefing.
“We expect the delegation here on November 15, and then head out to Zimba, en-route to Nampongo village and later to Chilaba village where there shall be a night stop,” Banda said.
She also said the delegation will also have a meeting with the Kubala Girls.
Academic Works has been collaborating with Response Network to ensure that vulnerable girls access education.
Many girls have since accomplished record breaking high school results such as 20-year-old Ndano Lubasi who last year got Zambia’s highest results and earned a place to study medicine at the Copperbelt University.
Many others have ended up becoming teachers and nurses while a big number of girls continue being assisted in attaining education from Grades 1 to 12.
And the Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) has also visited Response Networks projects in Nalombe after having a courtesy call at the Response Network office on Tuesday November 7.
Response Network director Håkon Spigseth briefed the NCA delegation of the organisations operations and activities being undertaken in Zimba, Kalomo and Kazungula districts.
