Zamcog is a UK based charity which helps educate some of Zambia's most at-risk children.
Zamcog supports the Shitima School, which began as a one-room classroom with only 8 students in the outskirts of Kabwe, Zambia. In the past 11 years, it has been transformed into a fully functioning boarding and day school for over 446 pupils, with two separate schools: the Robert Shitima Primary School and the Markit Secondary School, both of which boast bright and engaged students of all ages that are achieving some of the highest grades in Zambia.
Shitima has 96 students in the Residential Programme and supports 15 students at outside institutions. Shitima sets them on a path towards a happy and healthy future through the seeds of knowledge and self-confidence planted by education.
