Welcome to Zephaniah Learning System
Currently we are giving 200 students 12 free years of education between the ages of 6 and 18.
We recently (As of November 1, 2018 officially) shifted to a new school building that better suited the needs of our growing primary and secondary school children that are getting 12 years of free education. The other two buildings that we were taking on rent were causing us problems because the people we were renting from were not allowing us to accomodate the buildings for the students. This new large building is from a trustworthy and honest landlord who is allowing us to take it on rent for 3 to 5 years until we can resources and funds to get a permanent place.
The new building that we have taken is working well for us but the only issue is that the street has to be redone because there is sewage, water and trash on the street. Sister Zeph has been working on this and will do more soon with more support.
As you can see Sister Zeph has hired someone to clean up the mess but this will be an ongoing issue until someone higher up in the government can help her. Unfortunately this situation that you see right here is common in village areas of Pakistan but Sister Zeph wants higher standards for her school and students.
Despite any challenges that Sister Zeph or the school face the children and young girls go to school 6 days a week to receive their general education so that they may go to college and have a better life someday.
Pakistan practices load shedding where the electricity turns off every 2 hours for one hour. Despite this the students continue their work.

Help us Hire more Qualified Teachers
Right now we have a total of 13 teachers that are teaching all 200 students. We have to replace 4 of them with teachers that have higher qualifications so that we will adhere to the standards of having a registered school in Pakistan as well as provide better education to the students because most of the teachers currently do not even have bachelors degrees.The 13 teachers that we have each get a monthly salary of $55 and almost none of them have a bachelors degree and are not providing the best education that is possible for our children. Sister Zeph has always been aware of this but until now she has not had the resources or financial backing to be able to achieve this. The new teachers will cost $150 per month for salary and we know that this will increase our monthly expenses by $380 but we believe that this is absolutely necessary. If you want to help us us achieve this goal please consider contributing a recurring monthly amount. Everything helps !

This little girl fell down during school so the other children started coming up to her and wiping the tears off of her face. We couldn’t resist how cute they were so we took this sweet video. Enjoy : )
