Education is a Necessity

Education is a necessity. That's Reformed Open Community Schools (ROCS) tagline and they know what they're talking about. They've made education a reality for over 15,000 vulnerable children in rural and urban areas of Zambia.

We had the great opportunity to talk with Sonnile Phiri, ROCS Community Development Coordinator when she visited Santa Cruz late last year. She was in town to talk with several people about ROCS including the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Opportunity Collaboration UnConference and all of us at Firelight Foundation. It's something Firelight does as often as we can, bring African community leaders to talk with our staff and to connect them with others in the U.S. to discuss the many solutions African leaders implement everyday in their communities.
