RCH, the Dream Maker

“Take us to our Dreams”
Dreams1

dream01Children in rural Eastern Province of Zambia are born in an environment which offers them a very limited view of the world… Their world is limited to their immediate environment.
As RCH, we have resolved to create dreams in children’s brains.
We create Dreams, by replacing empty minds with open Ones.

We gave a pencil and a piece of paper to 307 pupils schooling at Chokato and Mwasiti RCH schools, from grade 1 to grade 7 and asked them to draw what they wanted to become in the future…

This exercise raised a lot of enthusiasm among our pupils. The majority of these children come from homes which live on less than a dollar per day, and all the know is to see an uneducated mother, father, uncle or guardian waking up very early in the morning, to go and till the ground…

This way of living has gone on for generations, and RCH has vowed to brake this cycle… by creating Dreams

dream02Our pupils have seen Teachers, when they started their schooling…
They are being protected by Soldiers…
Nurses have attended to them when they fell sick,
Reviewed by Doctors, when they were very, very sick…
What do you expect them to become? They can only dream to become what they have seen! Help us increase their visual field…

I am a…Teacher

I have a Dream… and I am very serious about it!
One day, I will become…

42% of our pupils want to become Teachers.
Even in Nyanje, children have seen airplanes leaving a long trail of smoke in the blue sky… That has been inspiration enough for Modester Mwale, a female pupil aged 14 years, and currently in grade 6, to dream of becoming a female Pilot!
I am President, dreams John F. Banda, 16 years, Grade 6
My dream, Said Josiah Zulu, a 19 years male pupil currently in grade 4, is to become a Musician. I have a song for you:

Doctor Menda, Mayi Menda,
Si tiza kuibalani…(x2)
Ntawi zonse, tipunzila,
Si tiza kuibalani…(x2)

Translation:

Doctor Menda, Mrs. Menda
We shall never forget you!
Every time we are in class studying
We shall never forget you!
