DAPP Projects




European Union supported enhancing quality of education through community school project

Nearly, half of all children in Zambia attend community schools. Getting a quality education is crucial for children attending community schools. However, quality education has been overlooked at these schools. DAPP Zambia works with Fundacion Pueblo Pare Pueblo under the European Union supported enhancing quality of education through community school project in 160 community schools reaching 50,000 vulnerable children in Northern, Muchinga and Central Provinces. 

The Project works within 5 districts, namely; Chibombo, Mkushi, Mpika, Kasama and Mungwi to improve quality of life through quality education for the vulnerable children. The quality of education will be enhanced by training teachers to improve performance; improving the Parents’ Community School Committees (PCSCs) involvement in the running of community schools; improving Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) practices; empowering vulnerable households economically; and documenting and sharing project’s lessons learnt and best practices.

To ensure that community schools are incorporated into government structures, the Enhancing Quality Education through Community Schools project is increasing advocacy to compel government for improved support and the delivery of improved services to community schools. This will allow for an increase in government teachers placementto community schools.

The main goal of the project is improved early grading and increased Grade Seven pass ratefor the pupil. 25% increase in retentions of teachers, 25% reduction in pupils’ dropout rate and 25% increase in attendance.
