Product Description

Beyond the Horizons: Chipembi School Blazes the Trail for Girls' Education and Empowerment in Zambia is a history of Chipembi School: its role in the evangelizing policies of the Methodist Missionary Society whose Wesleyan branch founded the school in 1912; its development as the leading school for African girls in the colonial period, and the first, and until 1956, the only school to offer secondary education to them. It follows the development of the school after Independence, its initial problems and subsequent successes in academic achievements and agricultural education and production. The book discusses the contribution of the schools' graduates, professionals in many fields, to the development of Zambia, and also documents their humanitarian work. Above all, it is an account written by two Chipembi girls' from the perspective of the girls themselves, illustrating the hardships, the achievements, the fun, the friendships and the faith that sustained so many of them in their years at school and in their later lives.
