Workers in the Field
Making an Impact
God still has Zambia on His mind. And every act of goodwill the country has done, together with all the prayers of the patriarch of the Christian faith in Zambia, starting from the days of the late missionary Dr. David Livingstone to date, will be richly rewarded at an appointed time. The word from half way around the world is one of encouragement and perseverance. Leadership Development's two workers, Dan Glanville & John Messner, worked as teachers in a small village in Zambia, Africa. Thanks to the elimination of tuition fees, primary-school enrolment rates have increased; the gender gap is less than 1%. However, there is a severe teacher shortage, and many students do not master fundamental skills in language and mathematics.
Building a Way
While the overall economic outlook in Zambia has been brightening, many Zambians have yet to share in the benefits: 64% of the population lives on less than $1.00 a day. Government austerity measures have tamed inflation and introduced fiscal discipline, but these strategies have also hindered the delivery of social services. When Dan and John were living in the village they found themselves in the middle of a poultry farming and egg production business. The chicken shelter built will hopefully continue to be an income generating project for the teachers of the school. Our goal is to work with the leadership in these rural villages bringing knowledge and resources to lay a foundation for economic and social change.
