About Start Strong Zambia:
Through early childhood, the brain grows at an amazing rate, with 90% of its development completed by age 5. But in Zambia, three out of four first-grade students aren’t ready for school because they haven’t received proper nutrition, health care and learning opportunities.
You’ll be proud to know Key Club is making a difference by supporting UNICEF efforts to:
Build innovative community centers called Insakas with spaces for children to learn and play, a community kitchen, playground, water and sanitation facilities and a vegetable garden.
Train community-based volunteers, health care providers and teachers to work with parents to create nurturing and stimulating environments for young children.
Provide age-appropriate toys such as blocks, stringing beads and books to encourage development and strengthen bonds between parents and children.
Key Club is excited to welcome Builders Club as partners in raising money and awareness for this cause!
Thanks to you, children in Zambia will grow up happier, healthier and better educated. And you won’t just be helping these children — you’ll be creating long-term change in an entire country.
