Orca Deco donates K111,000 to Jedidiah School


Zambia’s leading home and lifestyle deco company, Orca Deco has pledged to make charitable donations to the under-privileged in the community.

As part of their 5th year anniversary in Zambia, orca Deco’s first contribution in 2019 has been made to an early learning school; Jedidiah Learning Steps, making it the third charity to receive aid from the leading furniture store.

Jedidiah Learning Steps is a non-profit school founded in 2008 to provide education for children whose parents cannot afford to send them to school. The school offers free tuition for children from nursery to grade 7 and currently has enrolled about 400 students. The school goes further in not only providing education but also catering for the children’s lunch.

Orca Deco Zambia donated K93,000 worth of plastic plates, cups, forks, spoons, educational games, puzzles, balls, large basins and even mattresses and linen for the children’s families as many of them live in poor conditions.

Founder of Jedidiah Learning Steps, Sifelani Mwanza has seen the school go through many challenges. “There are times where we feel like we are doing the community work we do all alone, until great people like Orca Deco offer to help us. This donation has given us hope and reminds us that we are not alone in doing the work that we do to help the communities in need. The contribution from Orca Deco has truly changed the lives of so many today and for that we are very grateful.”

Speaking at the hand-over ceremony, Orca Deco Zambia Marketing Manager, Emma de Ricquebourg stated that the school had taken great steps in educating the youth. “Every child should have access to an education regardless of their socioeconomic circumstances. Orca Deco Zambia recognizes the importance of education in our community and is honored to have the opportunity to contribute in any way possible to create a suitable learning environment for the children”. Orca Deco Zambia will continue with two other donations to end the “Orca At 5” campaign. Source https://zambianbusinesstimes.com/orca-deco-donates-k111000-to-jedidiah-school/
