Since 2016, American Prep has partnered with our sister school, African Preparatory Academy in Zambia. This year, we are embarking on an ambitious journey to support the school through targeted initiatives. We are excited to invite our families to join us in these efforts, offering multiple opportunities to engage in projects unfolding over the coming months. This year is set to be particularly rewarding as we focus our energies on five critical initiatives designed to make a significant impact.

Leading our list of initiatives is the introduction of Solar Power and electricity to African Prep. This project is a pivotal step towards enhancing the educational experience and daily lives of students at African Prep. Below, you’ll find more details about this initiative and how your involvement can make a global difference, touching the lives of young learners across continents.

This week, our fundraising efforts are dedicated to supporting African Prep, our sister school in Africa, with a focus on implementing solar power and electricity. Our mission is to gather sufficient funds to equip the school with a comprehensive solar power system. This initiative will power essential services such as classroom lighting, a new water pump for the restrooms, and computer labs, and facilitate high school-level testing. Introducing electricity is a pivotal step towards expanding educational offerings up to the 12th grade, leveraging the computer lab for enhanced learning, and conducting high school exams. A significant improvement we aim to achieve is transitioning the school’s lunch preparation process to an entirely electric system. The preparation involves a manual, time-consuming method of cooking over an open fire for approximately five hours daily. This process demands significant labor to gather firewood and restricts the nutritional variety that can be offered to the students. By upgrading to electric meal preparation, we aspire to alleviate the labor-intensive tasks and broaden the dietary options available to the students, marking a substantial advancement in the school’s facilities and the well-being of its community.
