About Me

I am Moses Ziba , born in the border of town of Zambia in Mufulira in Kantanshi township.
I was born in a poor family of eight. Being the first born of our family, the Life was too hard for us to manage. My father and Mum didn't have a good job but they struggled very hard in order to get us food and pay school fees us.
Through struggling I managed to start enter into school at Mine Primary school . When I passed to secondary school, things got worse and due to lack of school fees, but through perseverance of my parents I managed to complete secondary school and obtained good results and I was selected to go to the University of Zambia and Graduated successfully with bachelor's degree of science in Education.
However, that is how nasty my the story of childhood life and how I overcame hardship. Today am a proud teacher and I also ran my own school in our community because I have the passion to educate the community especially the vulnerable in society, they need our support to unlock their destiny through education of which children in the continent of Africa especially Zambia where poverty has reached alarming level.

My Business

I ran a school in our community where I live. I provide education services and skills to the learners especially vulnerable in society. Education services that I provide is very important and useful in the lives of our children to unlock their potential in life. Through education sensitization, the school has enrolled many children ranging from grade 1 to 7, which is primary level and grade 8 to 12 which secondary level or high school. The response is very overwhelming to most parents in our community as the want their children to get educated and subsequently go the University of Zambia.
Mainly the school need more classroom blocks and so far the school has 5 classroom blocks which will need a total of ZMW 75,000 to construct other classroom blocks.
The school will also need to purchase books, computer equipment, desks and other things to ran the school and ensure the learner have all materials as they under go different courses from primary to secondary school.
The school is indeed profitable as many pupils still need to enroll.

Project Proposal

At least I will need to buy computer desktops in the school computer lab which will cost me ZMW 20000.00 and also the class room desks at ZMW 30,000.00. Due to high enrollment at the school, the learners will be able to learn properly and sit comfortably without inconveniencing each other. The school reputation and the school image will be known to the general public and allow more pupils to come and enroll and the school therefore will increase more revenue for the school for its teachers and some allowances
