2017 is off to a wonderful start for the young women of Bakashana!

      The young ladies pictured above are part of our first group of 12 girls living at the Bakashana Resource Center Boarding Facility. Housing them with love here at our center allows girls from far-away villages without access to quality education to study at the best school in Kasama and live in an environment conducive to learning and self-growth.

Thank you! 

With your help, Bakashana has assisted more than 60 girls in getting to school so far this year. As you may know, Zambia's academic calendar runs from January-December. From school shoes to uniforms to books to school fees, your contributions have allowed these girls another year to work towards a better future for themselves and their families.

Grade 10 Grantee Luswepo shares a video greeting to all of you! Fillmed at our last Girls Leadership workshop in early January. Luswepo's sponsor Pat has made such a difference in her life; from providing her with a bike, to consoling her through the loss of her mother, to now securing her a space in our boarding house. Through letters, videos, and email, Bakashana grantees develop a special relationship with the individuals sponsoring them. This also allows you, as a sponsor, to feel a close personal connection with the girl whose life you are changing!  
Thank you to all who have sponsored a young woman- you are truly her (and our) (s)hero!
Gertrude, 14, was brought to our office by her older sister. They lost their parents three years ago forcing Gertrude's sister to become the sole caregiver of her four younger siblings and her own two children, all at the age of 23. We have committed to helping Gertrude as she starts grade 8, and seek a sponsor to support her until she completes her education. She, along with many other girls, are still seeking sponsors to join them on their academic journeys. Please meet Gertrude and the 11 other young women who need your help here and learn how you can "be a rainbow in their cloud".  Sponsorship levels start at just about $1/day.
