Response Network runs an education sponsorship program for orphans and vulnerable girls. The girls in the program are called Kubala girls – meaning «the reading girls». Sponsors from two countries, Norway and Sweden, currently help 600 orphaned girls to take part in education in order to improve their knowledge and be more integrated in the community.


    • 50 grade ones pupils enrolled every year
    • 23 Kubala girls graduate in fashion and Design as well as Electric engineering at Livingstone Institute of Business of Engineering studies
    • Improved acces to quality education for girls.
    • improved computer and reading skills among the Kubala girls
    • Enhance girl child education and livelihood through family interventions that translates into improved house hold economics.

    The Kubala girls

    The program depends on donations and funding from individuals and

    provides scholarships to orphans and vulnerable girls who cannot pay

    for their school fees. Many of the children have been orphaned as

    a result of the HIV/AIDS pandemic that has affected a large share of adults

    in Zambia.

    cleaning the surroundings for the old people at Maramba

    Old People’s home.

    Response Network identifies children with a need for sponsorship

    through contacts with schools and families. The sponsorship includes

    school fees for those not in Government schools, uniforms and other

    material needed for education. Each child may get a sponsorship for

    1-7 years of education. The child will receive the education sponsorship

    for two years at a time. The program is run by a competent and educated

    staff. Response Network also holds continuous dialogue with the teachers

    and families and involves the Government (Social Welfare) in the selection process.

    Resource Centre

    What started in a tent donated by Academic Work has now become a fully-fledged permanent building which is called the Resource Center. In here, the children are able to study, do homework, borrow reference textbooks and also receive supplementary Information Technology (IT) lessons from a qualified teacher.

    How to apply for Scholarship


    Any single or double orphan including vulnerable girl and boy child in need of sponsorship can apply for a scholarship.

    1. Visit your careers teacher at your school and prove to the school authorities that you really need the scholarship. The school authorities will give us the necessaryinformation about you and our staff and other people will then conduct interviews or verification exercises. This verification is done through home visits.

    2The second method is simply to come to Response Network offices and tell us your story. From your story we will consider your application and if you qualify for sponsorship


    Your donation can help get one more vulnerable child into school.
