August 11, 2021Greetings from Barefoot-Chisankano Community School. We want to furnish you with what we have done this year. (from January to July 2021) We have had an amazing journey despite the Covid-19 pandemic. We opened school on the 1st of February, 2021 and we thank God that all the learners and the members of staff were in good health. The term was quite an experience as we did some interesting activities that were beneficial to the school. Normal lessons were conducted as usual, on 17th of February, we had tree planting for silver jubilee. We planted twenty five trees to mark the existence of Barefoot-Chisankano Community School. The school also organized a day of peace and unity for the learners and on the same day which was March 4th, we had a privilege of blessing the grotto by Father Jossepe, a Neo-catechumen (Luendo) priest. Mass was conducted and this was an incredible experience for the school. In the same month the school invited professional Art experts (Mr. Chiyeso Danny and the team) to teach the learners about art specifically drawing and painting. The lessons were conducted for a week because each class was given the whole day learning about drawing and painting. Each class drew and painted their own drawing of their choice. On the last day of 10th March, the school held an art exhibition and the drawings were displayed on the school walls. We danced and sang with the learners. In attendance was sister Gabrielle and the Art team. The pupils who drew and painted outstanding pictures won prizes and certificates were given to all the pupils. We had food throughout the first and the second term, we also planted different types of vegetables in readiness for the next term and at the same time to sustain our feeding program. We successfully harvested our groundnuts and maize. Despite all the good things we experienced, we also had some challenges in conducting our planned activities, like doing charity work at the hospital and visiting the old people in our community. We wanted to take up such activities in remembering you our sponsors, who are doing much for us and for our existence here at Barefoot. We hope that with the introduction of covid vaccine, the disease will reduce so that next term we can accomplish what we have planned for our jubilee year. Imagine this second term which seemed to be bright, turned out a challenge, the numbers of covid-19 cases increased by hundreds, thousands and as such  we were told to close prematurely for two weeks but now we are told the schools will resume on 16th August, and l hope and pray that it will be so because on the 12th August there will be presidential elections. My prayer is that everything should come to normal as soon as possible. On behalf of the pupils, teachers and the supporting staff, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to you for all the support and sustenance we have received from you in the course of 2021 and the previous years. May the Lord grant you heavenly blessings, good health and joy. Yours sincerely,   Sr. Martha Phiri O.P Coordinator/Headmistress.   25th July, 2021. [...] Weiterlesen...
September 26, 2019Deutsche Version hier klicken Dear Sponsors, I was happy to learn that I was a recipient of this sponsorship towards my higher education. With this regard, I hereby write to you to express my deepest and heartfelt gratitude for awarding me this scholarship as it has really changed my life. I am a teacher of English language and History who plans to graduate on 11th October, 2019 at Kwame Nkrumah University, here in Zambia. With the financial support rendered to me, I embarked upon my four years teaching career on 14th September, 2015. Upon graduation, I will seek employment with the Zambian government so that I can also be a blessing to others mostly, the underprivileged like you have been to me. If my memory serves me well, I grew up a skeptical and pessimistic person because we did not have a lot of money to take me to school as a family. The situation was worsened by the departure of my mother and the abrupt mental illness of my Dad. Barefoot has done greater things just to better my life especially with education. Currently I am no longer an orphan because I have acquired a tool to develop my life. God shall surely bless you. It has always been my rare privilege and honor to have such a generous and tender-hearted people like you who took me throughout my life and turned me into a very educated man of substance as I am today This donation towards my education allowed me to achieve my dreams and made them a reality. I am thankful for such an achievement.  I must also mention that the money you sent helped me pay for all my needed college expenses to progress further to reach my dream with no arrears. I cannot express my happiness enough for this privilege, but I feel honored and it acts as an enormous motivator. It is also of my great honor knowing that there are people in this world that want me to succeed, a people to emulate after, for such kind hearts like you, are uncommon in Zambia and the world at large. God shall surely bless you. As mentioned in my preamble, your generosity has allowed me to make my goals and dreams a reality. I hope in turn one day I will be able to give back to help other students achieve their goals. I wish you continued success and with abundant blessings from the Almighty God. Yours truly, Samuel Zimba. Übersetzung mit Google translation Sehr geehrte Sponsoren, Ich war froh zu erfahren, dass ich diese Patenschaft für meine Hochschulausbildung erhalten habe. In diesem Zusammenhang möchte ich Ihnen hiermit meinen tief empfundenen Dank für die Vergabe dieses Stipendiums aussprechen, das mein Leben wirklich verändert hat. Ich bin ein Lehrer für englische Sprache und Geschichte, der am 11. Oktober 2019 an der Kwame Nkrumah Universität hier in Sambia seinen Abschluss machen möchte. Mit der mir gewährten finanziellen Unterstützung habe ich am 14. September 2015 meine vierjährige Lehrerkarriere begonnen. Nach meinem Abschluss werde ich mich um eine Anstellung bei der sambischen Regierung bemühen, damit ich größtenteils auch ein Segen für andere sein kann, die wie Sie unterprivilegiert sind war bei mir. Wenn mir mein Gedächtnis gut tut, bin ich skeptisch und pessimistisch aufgewachsen, weil wir nicht viel Geld hatten, um als Familie zur Schule zu gehen. Die Situation wurde durch den Abgang meiner Mutter und die plötzliche psychische Erkrankung meines Vaters verschlechtert. Barfuß hat größere Dinge getan, um mein Leben zu verbessern, besonders mit der Ausbildung. Derzeit bin ich kein Waisenkind mehr, weil ich ein Werkzeug erworben habe, um mein Leben zu entwickeln. Gott wird dich sicher segnen. Es war schon immer mein Privileg und meine Ehre, solch großzügige und zärtliche Menschen wie Sie zu haben, die mich mein Leben lang mitgenommen und mich zu einem sehr gebildeten Mann von Substanz gemacht haben, wie ich es heute bin Diese Spende für meine Ausbildung ermöglichte es mir, meine Träume zu verwirklichen. Ich bin dankbar für eine solche Leistung. Ich muss auch erwähnen, dass das Geld, das Sie mir geschickt haben, mir geholfen hat, alle meine College-Ausgaben zu bezahlen, damit ich meinen Traum ohne Rückstand verwirklichen kann. Ich kann mein Glück für dieses Privileg nicht genug ausdrücken, aber ich fühle mich geehrt und es wirkt wie ein enormer Motivator. Es ist mir auch eine große Ehre, zu wissen, dass es Menschen auf dieser Welt gibt, die wollen, dass ich Erfolg habe. Ein Volk, das es nachahmen kann, denn so freundliche Herzen wie Sie sind in Sambia und der ganzen Welt ungewöhnlich. Gott wird dich sicher segnen. Wie in meiner Präambel erwähnt, hat es mir Ihre Großzügigkeit ermöglicht, meine Ziele und Träume zu verwirklichen. Ich hoffe, dass ich eines Tages wieder etwas zurückgeben kann, um anderen Schülern zu helfen, ihre Ziele zu erreichen. Ich wünsche Ihnen weiterhin viel Erfolg und viel Segen vom allmächtigen Gott. Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Samuel Zimba [...] Weiterlesen...
Juni 13, 2019Ihr Lieben, Euch Allen sonnige, aber kühle, Grüße aus der Barefoot Chisankano Community School. Da herrscht z. Zt. große Freude, denn das neue Klassenzimmer ist fertig. Per Anhang schicke ich ein paar Fotos. Unsere Kinder werden sich an den Tag gern erinnern, denn nach der Segnung des neuen Gebäudes gab es auch etwas Gutes für den Magen!  Sr Martha war schon um 4 Uhr früh aufgestanden um die Leckerli vorzubereiten und BanaNoria hat sie dann fertig gebacken. Der neue Raum wird für Lehrer und Schüler/innen eine echte Hilfe sein. Wir sind alle sehr dankbar.   Seid ganz herzlich gegrüßt von allen hier, Sr. Gabrielle.   Die Morgensonne wirft ihre wärmenden Strahlen als die Mädchen und Jungen sich vor dem neuen Klassenzimmer versammeln. Sr Theresa singt das Segenslied mit dem Schulchor: „Dein Segen sei auf diesem Haus…“ Ein Schüler bringt eine Schüssel mit Wasser das feierlich geweiht wird. Fr. Kaputa verkündet das Wort Gottes. Erklärende Worte helfen den Schüler/innen die Bedeutung des Segens zu verstehen. Sr Martha bricht einen Zweig vom Baum und damit wird das Weihwasser großzügig verteilt! Drinnen wie draußen wird gebetet und der Segen Gottes auf das neue Gebäude und alle die darin lernen und unterrichten werden, herabgefleht. Trommeln und Tanzen gehören zu jedem Fest! Mwilla kommt angetanzt mit einem Korb. Wie traditionelle Höflichkeit es verlangt, kniet sie nieder um den Korb anzubieten. Fr. Kaputa freut sich über Korb und Inhalt. Die Kinder haben ihre persönlichen Dankeszettel in den Korb gelegt. Wir Alle sagen Herzlichen Dank! Vergelt’s Gott! [...] Weiterlesen...
