About this cause

About our cause

Beyond Ourselves is a small charity set up by local businesses (Stephen James BMW and Big & Red Storage) who desire to use their time, skill and profits beyond themselves. Beyond Ourselves is working in partnership with local Zambians helping to build and develop community schools in the Copperbelt region of Zambia. The majority of children in these schools are orphans and vulnerable children who cannot afford to go to the government schools and are living in communities where there is high unemployment, high HIV prevalence and low life expectancy. In the past 2 years we have developed a model that is straightforward and effective. We begin by building relationship with an existing community school running out of a local church in the area, and then offer to partner with the church and school to help resource and develop them in the following ways through a child sponsorship programme: • Building a classroom block, toilet block and kitchen area • Running a feeding programme that feeds children every school day • Employing cooks and teachers • Providing school resources and school uniform • Employing a nurse to visit the school once a week
