400 Ngombe children access free education
Lusaka, June 6, 2015, ZANIS—A social entrepreneur Frank Masanta has made a bold decision to supplement government efforts of providing quality education to vulnerable people.

Mr. Masanta runs a school called Sun-Spring Charity primary school which provides free education to children whose parents and guardians are unable to pay school fees.

He said over 400 children in Lusaka’s Ng’ombe Township have since benefited from his free education policy.

He said since the establishment of the school in 2011, the response from both learners and parents has been overwhelming.

Mr. Masanta, who is also the founder of Youth for Africa Renaissance and Faculty Organization, told ZANIS in an interview that he was running Sun-Spring Charity School with the aim of helping children who cannot afford to pay school fees.

He said the American International School Rotterdam adopted his school last year in order to support it financially and to develop its infrastructure.

Mr. Masanta also said his school was currently collaborating with the International School of Lusaka under Action for Children Together programme (ACT) in order to provide quality knowledge to learners.

And Mr. Masanta has toured Shimunguwo village in Rufunsa district where he plans to open another charity school that will benefit children who cover long distances to schools.

Meanwhile, Mr. Masanta has urged the general public to help government in educating children through building community schools in areas where there are no such institutions.

  1. A very good thing, keep it up Frank Masanta. Every Zambian ought to emulate you. Not just sitting and waiting for government to act. We all have the potential within ourselves to help others and make a change.

  4. Great work. I don’t mind helping out in a small way by making both financial and materials(exercise books, pens, pencils e.t.c). A mathematical set for each of the 400 students. Can anyone give contact details?

  6. Mr. Masanta should be given credit. Please keep it up This is really self actualisation under Maslow heirarchy of needs through being of service to the poor!

    You are better than all these guys who go into politics for self enrichment instead of service to the poor. Apparently there is millions of dollars from individuals and institutional donors in the West that can be accessed by MPS who have constituences if they prepared project proposals which identify needs to help the poor in their constituences. What the donors do not want is for MPS and public figures to personally benefit and that is the reason our public figures are not interested to access such funds. Donors want accountability.
