   Additional Description of Link Cecily's Fund
 


Cecily's Fund is a UK registered charity that makes it possible for Zambian orphans and other impoverished children to go to school

We give them shoes, uniforms, books, pens and help with fees, without which they could not go to school. We also help them to help other children by becoming Peer Health Educators and Teachers.

We've teamed up with Zambian organisations who understand the battle for survival against poverty and AIDS. They help us to identify the poorest children and then deliver what they need through government schools. We regularly visit the childrens' schools and homes ourselves to make sure the money is doing exactly what it was intended to.

Many of these children were orphaned or driven to poverty as as result of AIDS. Without school they have little hope or support. But at school they:

  • Get emotional support from teachers and friends
  • Become more confident and learn how to avoid getting HIV
  • Learn skills so they can go to college and earn a living

We've made a promise to support each child that we take on right to the end of his or her school career. This is only possible with the help of our supporters. !

Our vision

Cecily's Fund's vision is of a Zambia in which every child is educated and grows up to lead a self-reliant, healthy, fulfilling life and play an integral part in Zambia's development.

Our mission

Cecily's Fund is a non-governmental organisation committed to improving the prospects for every Zambian orphan and vulnerable child to grow up to lead a self-reliant, healthy and fulfilling life. We do this by working with trusted Zambian partner organisations to ensure that these children have access to education and gain knowledge, life skills and HIV information.

Our origins

Cecily Eastwood was a sparkly nineteen-year-old when she embarked on her gap year between school and university. She left her home in Oxfordshire to spend a year teaching in Zambia. When she arrived in the Zambian town of Kitwe, she set about finding an organisation with which to volunteer. She found an organisation called CINDI, which helps children who have been orphaned by AIDS.

Cecily died, only months later, in a Zambian road accident. Her parents, Basil and Alison Eastwood, set up Cecily's Fund in her memory - our smiley logo is the one she used to sign her letters home. Cecily's Fund continues to support the education of orphaned and vulnerable children in the Kitwe area of Zambia today.

We regard ourselves as a bridge between our supporters and the orphaned and vulnerable children whom we are helping in Zambia. We attach great importance to maintaining and developing both ends of the bridge.

An annual celebration - Cecily's Day

Cecily's Day is a mass picnic of family, friends and supporters. It is held each year on the first or second Saturday in September in Oxfordshire, England.
