On 16th September 2022, Timothy Graduated with Merit and attained a Certificate in Basic Firefighting in Kabwe, Zambia. He is currently applying for internships in various organizations in order to gain work experience.
Despite the obstacles, Timothy maintained his perseverance and determination to further his education.
Timothy, 25 years old, was mostly raised by his grandmother in Livingstone and has been on the African Impact Foundation Sponsor a Child program since Grade 6. Timothy has always been determined to perform well academically in order to have a better future and be able to support his family. After completing his Secondary education, Timothy was supported by the Foundation to study Power Electricals, a course offered at the Community Development Centre in Livingstone; however, due to Covid-19 challenges, he could not finish the program. Despite the obstacles, Timothy maintained his perseverance and determination to further his education.
By 2021, he realized he was passionate about joining the National Fire Service School to become a trained firefighter. He fought hard to apply for a short training course at the Zambia National Service training school in Kabwe, Zambia. The Foundation sponsored Timothy to buy some of his school requirements and pay for his tuition fees. Through his small clothing business, he managed to contribute towards tuition fees.
