Story

We've identified 900 vulnerable girls in Chingola, in Zambia's Copperbelt Province. Due in part to the high cost of fees, they were at risk of having to leave education altogether, but with our support they've progressed into secondary school.

To give these girls the chance at a better life that they deserve, Cecily's Fund and our partners have not only helped them to remain in school. We've informed both the girls and their mothers about their essential rights; we've helped keep them healthy and safe from HIV; and we've helped them gain business skills so they can raise the money for school fees on their own terms.

In March 2019, our funding for this vital work comes to an end. Cecily's Fund wants very much to extend our support to the girls and their families, and to do this we need your help. By raising £36,000 this Christmas, we can keep the girls in school and continue running all our interventions that are changing their lives for the better.

I will always be with the DREAMS project and Cecilys fund in my heart even after the project ends. I will remember you for the rest of my life when I look at my successful daughter that you helped me educate and the flourishing businesses you helped me establish and grow.

About the charity

Cecily's Fund
Cecily's Fund

Since 1998 Cecily's Fund has transformed the lives of thousands of the most vulnerable children in Zambia by enabling them to go to school. Education gives them a ladder out of the destitution to which they are otherwise condemned. Tragically Cecily died there in her gap year. This is her legacy.
