Zambia making steady progress in education sector-Envoy
Lusaka, February 15th ,ZANIS–Zambia’s envoy to Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg and the European Union (EU) Grace Kabwe has said the country’s education standards were steadily improving.
Ambassador Kabwe said the current government has embarked on various education reform programmes that will ensure that every child in Zambia has access to quality education.
She said this in Netherlands yesterday when she officiated at the reunion of Windeshien University of Applied Sciences students that had been doing projects in Eastern province under the Diocese of Chipata.
Mrs. Kabwe has since appealed to the Windeshiebn University management to consider an exchange programme with Zambian students from various institutions of learning so as to provide cultural and social education exchange among the learners.
At the same function, University Consultant for International Projects Peter Lindhould commended Zambia and the Chipata Diocese for their continued cooperation with his institution.
Windesheim University has been working with Chipata Diocese since 2007 and every year students go to Chipata to share knowledge and work with the community in finding solutions to street children, sex workers and youth unemployment among other issues.
