Supporting Education and Training in Zambia
The Rotary Club of Taunton funded the education and training of a young Zambian teacher.
In 2007 the Rotary Club of Taunton embarked upon a project to support a young Zambian boy’s ambition and dream to become a teacher. His name is Oscar Sitali.
With financial support and encouragement from the Club Oscar was able to further his education and train as a teacher. Now fully qualified, Oscar works as a teacher of mathematics and religious education. He is now married and has a young son and teaches in the village in which he was raised. He regularly communicates with Club about his commitment to improving the life chances of those in his own community. The Club is delighted in his success.
Oscar is just one of many education projects supported by the national Rotary organisation and individual Clubs in the world and across the UK.
