Empowered Leaders Academy aims to provide not only a top-notch education by village standards but by national standards. We equip and train local teachers in different teaching methods through our international teacher exchange volunteer program.
We have plans to build a secondary school in the village as well! The nearest secondary school for the children in Zirobwe is over a two hour walk. The secondary school costs and distance can discourage students and many opt. Additionally, we plan to build dormitories to house children living in unsuitable home environments so they can be encouraged and given a place to focus on their studies. Giving students an opportunity to attend such a school will bring their mind set out of a life of poverty and give them confidence in knowing they can succeed in life.
