Education for all: My elevator pitch

Lumbiwe Lulu Limbikani
Posted March 17, 2017 from Zambia

My name Lulu Lumbiwe Limbikani. I am an Education and Technology specialist. I run a non-profit organisation in Zambia called Cumacatu that advocates and promotes children and women’s rights to education. We work with girls, especially those in rural areas, that have dropped out of school due to pregnancy or financial constraints and supporting them with back to school resources, visioning and goals setting training and mentorship. We believe in working with the community for sustainable impact, and involve local and leadership in our activities. I believe education is the key to solving the world’s problems. Once we educate one of these girls in these communities, they will in turn educate their children and who will then foster development, and a better world for all.

Hi Lulu. Thanks for sharing your mission and pitch here. I agree that education is powerful. Does Cumacatu have a website to follow or to learn more about?

Dear Lulu,

Great pitch!  I really appreciated all the details you provide so I can better understand the work you are doing.  I particularly loved your comment that the education a mother receives further guarantees she will make education for her daughters a priority.  Keep up the wonderful work!
