Project inspires women to be more than a wife

How e-learning is empowering young women in Zambia to become nurses

By Bonar Bell, communications manager, Canada

What if marriage was your only option for the future? That’s the case for many young women in Zambia, a country where one in three girls is married before the age of 18, according to Girls Not Brides. But, now technology is creating more opportunity.

The $7.6-million Zambia Nursing and Life Skills Program, funded by the MasterCard Foundation through ChildFund International and Amref Health Africa with support from Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, is offering innovative training for nurses in 12 districts of Zambia, creating better paths to success.

Students in the program use tablets to learn nursing theory, blending in-class lectures with self-study, which is fostering an increased sense of self-motivation and more time learning in the hospital.

The e-learning curriculum also introduces life-skills training, with lessons on time-management, entrepreneurship and leadership. This is giving students renewed confidence, self-esteem and motivation.

“After life skills, Mrs. Akwimba said ‘marriage is not an achievement, it’s a short-term goal,' says Martha, a student of the e-learning program. “Now, my thoughts have changed — the way I look at life… Marriage is the last thing on my mind, right now. I want to do more.”

Meet Martha, 23, and Zeliwe, 24, who share their experiences in the e-learning program, including how the life-skills course is giving them a fresh outlook on life.
