Beauty Queen Campaigns for Conducive Learning Environment for Kids



In an effort to create a conducive learning environment for children everywhere, Miss Intercontinental Zambia 2017, Precious Ng'oma has taken it upon herself to make a difference and her campaign kicks off with the Mumba Children's Project.

"I became aware of the Mumba Children's Project in 2017, roughly around the time I was crowned Miss Intercontinental Zambia. The Children's Centre is an affiliate of the pageant, located in Mulebi Village in Mpongwe District.
"I decided to pay the centre a visit and what I found there both inspired me and broke my heart. That was the motivation behind my wanting to raise awareness for the Mumba Children's Project, which is also referred to as the Mumba Day Care Centre", said Precious Ng'oma.

"This particular group of children touched my heart because even though the conditions in which they are currently learning are not sub-standard due to lack of funding, they still come to school and sit on mats on the floor, learning in an unfinished school block with no ceiling, windows, floor, e.t.c., and manage to still be vibrant and in good spirits while learning. How could I not want to help such inspirational children?", she added.

With the campaign taking shape by each new day, it is Precious' hope that other well-wishers out there will come in and join the cause.
"Currently, I'm campaigning to raise funds that will enable me to purchase at least 20 desks for the pupils at the centre so that they don't have to learn whilst sitting on the floor. I am hoping to raise awareness and gain the interest of well wishers who can do even more for the children, IE; contribute towards the completion of the classrooms, donate teaching and reading materials, clothes, and food stuffs for the children, among many other things", said the beauty queen.

Ng'oma, who is passionate about children and their well-being believes that all children are entitled, not only to a good education but a conducive learning envirinment as well and is willing to take her campaign to the rest of the nation.
"I would definitely love to take this campaign to other districts as well because I know for a fact that there are many children outside of Mpongwe district, who lack proper learning facilities. I believe all our Zambian children are entitled to a quality education as well as a conducive learning environment", said Precious.
