Uniting Church Banyule Network provides Scholarship for EDITH MWAULUKA  

For the love of teaching and serving vulnerable children in the community, Edith Mwauluka has been teaching voluntarily at Libuyungu Community School in Nkeyema District, Western-Province.

Born on 2nd January, 1988, Edith has been teaching as a volunteer teacher at Libuyungu Community School for the past six (06) years.

Ms. Mwauluka started teaching at Libuyungu in 2015 when she realised that she could help vulnerable children in the community by letting her passion lead the way and make a difference especially after noticing children walked long distances to have access to education in that area.  

She has been teaching Grades one and four at the school and her efforts of teaching have in most cases been appreciated through gifts in kind- a bucket of maize, chickens and many other farm products that the parents contribute to support her activities at the school.

Two years ago, Mwauluka enrolled for a Primary Teacher diploma program through distance learning at Gideon Roberts, a private University. However, she could not continue with the studies as the little stipends received from parents in Libuyungu could not meet the University needs (fees and study materials). 

In a chat with ZOCS during the monitoring visit to the District and School, Mwauluka still shared about her deep desire to get trained from a recognised institution (University or College) saying undergoing training will help her enhance her teaching skills and ensure quality education is delivered to the OVC of Libuyungu.  Getting a University qualification will also place her at an advantage for possible recruitment by Government (being put on Government pay roll) while she continues serving at the same school.
