We had no sooner pulled into her village compound, when Kathryn rushed out of the vehicle to embrace the four little girls she now calls her sisters. Her aunt dropped a bundle of small sweeping sticks and in her haste to welcome us, she startled the chickens and ducks that were picking up crumbs of food in the compound.

Returning ‘home’, Kathryn's face beamed with joy. She is the proud recipient of an education scholarship from World Vision and now lives in a boarding facility run by World Vision's partner organization, City of Joy.

Instead of celebrating Loveness’ graduation from primary to secondary school, she despaired because she did not know how she would pay the higher tuition. Fortunately, Loveness was accepted at City of Joy, a facility run by World Vision’s partner for the Zambia Education-Every Last One (ZEELO) project. Loveness is one of 22 girls who received a scholarship from World Vision through ZEELO. The scholarship provides funding for tuition, food, shelter and other necessities.
