Where can I find out more information about my school?

Can I visit my school?
We love to have visitors at Impact One! If you are interested in visiting us in Zambia, you would have the chance to see your partner school, as well as the other schools within our network. You will also have the chance to see the community we work in and the Library and Resource Center that serves our partner schools. If you are interested in visiting our work, please contact us.
How is my money used?
Your money is used to support the programs that benefit our network of 9 schools. It will help us continue training and mentoring all of our schools, including your partner school, as well as providing books, technology, resources, and more. The money will not be given directly to your partner school, but will be used in such a way to encourage sustainable development within the school.
Can I choose the school I sponsor?
Can I sponsor a student or teacher instead?
No, not directly. Our model of work focuses on equipping schools for the benefit of all the students and teachers within them. It’s for this reason that we encourage school sponsorship as opposed to an individual student or teacher sponsorship. When you give, your money will support the work of the school, which is in turn raising up all the teachers and students within the school. Therefore, instead of supporting one child, you can support hundreds at a time!
