Every Monday afternoon, GEMS interns, Mary Leslie and Sophie, head out to Chongwe to spend two hours teaching preschool in the village. The number of children varies week to week, but on many Mondays, up to 90 children show up ready to learn. These inspirational women sing songs, read stories, and teach other valuable early literacy skills. A to Z Literacy Movement provided books for Mary Leslie and Sophie to share with their class and it was a true pleasure to watch the women in action. Our mission is to provide books to children in impoverished areas and that’s just what we are doing with this program here in Zambia.
