Donating Computers, Zambia and Zimbabwe
Two of Henny’s Kids’ earliest projects are in Zambia and Zimbabwe. Candyce Stapen took time out from her assignments in Africa as a travel journalist to visit rural schools. Most lacked electricity and adequate supplies. The children, eager and bright, learned from old textbooks. Stapen decided to make a difference so she created Henny’s Kids.
Rural Schools Solar Powered Laptop Delivery
Since early education is vital, Henny’s Kids supports elementary (primary) schools. By donating laptops loaded with programs, solar panels to power the computers, textbooks for the children, and training for the teachers, Henny’s Kids invests in youngsters. Two of Henny’s Kids’ earliest projects are in the Zambezi region.

"With these computers, we can only go from strength to strength in educating our students here at Ngamo Primary, as we now have access to digital technology, a first in this remote rural area," says Mr. Moyo, Headmaster Ngamo Primary School.
