Rambia’s Microfinance Work
Rambia is in the process of working with 20 Village Savings & Loans Associations which pool savings, make loans to members and access external credits in order to improve livelihoods.
Rambia’s School for Orphans
Because of the large number of orphans in the community and the weaknesses in the public education system, the RAMBIA Orphanage Care Nursery & Primary School has recently been established to serve both orphans and private students. Located in a nine room building near the RAMBIA Health Centre, the school provides classes for Nursery School and Primary levels 1-5. It is hoped that its ready access to the Health Centre will bring about improvements in the children’s health. Every child is given one meal a day, a service which is not provided in the public school system.
Please consider making a donation: your gift will go towards establishing and operating the school, including:
- Feeding the children;
- Constructing latrines;
- Buying school supplies; and
- Buying uniforms and books.
