Education Support

Musonda School

Improving school access and quality of education amongst children receiving education support through PLAEP: Through access to quality education Children are empowered with the requisite lifelong knowledge and skills that enhances their access to opportunities and income which invariably reduces poverty.

School Support

PLAEP now supports over 900 HIV affected Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) at Musonda School. The school runs from grade one to nine. At least 50 students at Musonda School progress to grade 10 annually.

Daily Nutritious Meals

Poverty and hunger lead many children in our community to skip school! The meals serve as a huge incentive for children to attend and remain in school and bolster their difficult journey out of poverty. $900 feeds an entire school for 1 week. Over 900 school children rely on us for their only daily meal.

Child Sponsorship

Every bit of support from generous sponsors like yourselves enables PLAEP to meet various school expenses for these children including daily nutritious meals, user fees, school supplies, clothing, and household support as needed.

- Our Programmes -

Psychotherapy Care

A dedicated school counselor offers individual counseling to help students resolve personal or interpersonal problems. Small group counseling is also offered to help students enhance listening and social skills, learn to empathize with others, Cope with school or community-related violence, and trauma and find social support through healthy peer relationships.


Life Skills Development

We are dedicated to raising students’ academic standards and levels as well as their spiritual, moral, social, and cultural understanding as they progress through Musonda School. This enables each of our pupils the chance to develop a solid sense of self, a feeling of place and purpose, and the self-assurance to explore and question who they are in the world. Additionally, it gets them ready for life’s great challenges to come.

Community day care centres

The day care centres provide an early learning environment for young children to engage in age appropriate, language-rich activities and social interactions to stimulate social attachments, physical and intellectual abilities as they progress to grade one. Two centres have been established in Mufuchani and Musonda communities of Kitwe with over 60 learners.

Adult literacy programmes

The adult literacy programme was introduced to address the low adult literacy levels in the community. PLAEP shares the view that illiteracy is both the cause and the effect of many social challenges and has a profound socio-economic impact on low-income households and further perpetuates a vicious cycle of poverty due to lack of skills to sustain production or gain them formal employment.

The programme aims at providing the learners with functional literacy and numeracy skills. A combination of interactive and participatory teaching-learning methods is employed during literacy classes, including problem-solving, role play (simulations) storytelling, and group discussions.
