OUR IMPACT / ZAMBIA
Our focus in Zambia is specifically on early childhood education. Through strategic partnerships, our goal is to give both children and teachers the support they need.
The SOAR program in Zambia is aimed at fostering learning outcomes in early childhood development (EC) services for ages 0–6 years. The ECD program is a 6-month accelerated program (SOAR center) for children who never attended school and for children between the ages of 10–17 who attended school partially. The plan is to reach 50,000 children over the three-year pilot program that started in 2018.
Since the program started in Zambia, 20 SOAR centers have become fully operational, with trained teachers. In 2019, 976 adolescent learners and 1,302 children ages 3–6 enrolled in the 6-month accelerated program, and 382 young mothers were recruited as caregivers for children under 3 years.

As the foundation grows and expands to reaching more children impacted by poverty, malnutrition, and lack of education, we believe there is an urgent need to build this network, which is the centerpiece of our organization.
If leaving a legacy of service is your passion, then you are the piece of the puzzle we need to continue our great work for children around the world.

All For One continues to be passionate about building a strong community of volunteers that complements the countless efforts of our organization. Active volunteers’ enthusiasm encourages all of us. We believe that each of our stories is critical to the legacy and impact that we have in the world. Each actively involved volunteer will share a short story of themselves and their purpose for joining the mission.
Volunteers select an area of interest and write a short story of themselves, including what motivates and inspires them, what activities fill their day, their values, and how they can add to All For One’s culture.
Loving what you do is the epitome of fulfillment. An ideal volunteer embodies a love of selfless giving of themselves, their talents, and their time. Volunteering is a generous and noble feat where one offers time, self, skills, and talents freely. Giving selflessly is a powerful attribute to give back to the community. The volunteer questionnaire assists in identifying and developing characteristics ideal for being a volunteer for All For One.
