    Impact Your World

    CHANGE STARTS WITH YOU

     
    Chikabala Kaleta The young motivational speaker who is also the founder of Kaleta Voluntary support was born and brought up in Chambishi township in kalulushi district zambia
    Despite the background of the 25 years old,Chikabala Kaleta who never gave up on education because all his childhood he spent building his dream,and now he is a third year student at cyprus international university in MBA after obtaining a Diploma in economics at Dongbei university of finance and economics in dalian,china
    "My dream has always been to see needy youth and children have an opportunity to get educated.. Currently, there are many youths and children around our country with a good ability and commitment to education but lack opportunity"
    With the interest of reaching thousands of fellow youths and children with no opportunity to education to make them become part of the societies by providing them with educational materials he also raise funds for those who cant manage."i started like a joke by getting everything i was having as my pocket money from home by buying and printing books then go and give out to needy children in rural areas of chambishi and through out zambai " many people were laughing and were taking it like i had nothing to do, but i said to them "am doing this not because i want to be seen that i can do it but because i always want to be a Big Brother or good friend by Helping needy fellow youths and kids for i know how they feel and going through because i was once like them he added.
    He started my support in the year (2012) with a few to give but it made changes in a lot of the needy youths and children's lives education wise,But now has some other bigger companies like Thochima enterprises ltd, Mama Africa and Eagle age investment limited who liked the idea and have started working together with him by assisting us with funds for the materials and others.
    People will always say that you cannot make it but you can. Just open your heart to opportunities and grab them with dignity,'this is the opportunity am trying to share with my fellow needy youths, so they should ever never give up because i didn't and am the living testimony'.
    "in future i would want to see if our funding is grown to go and reach all the needy in education through out our country,
    "I believe that young people can do and become whatever they want if they are given a chance to get educated. I have always being a person who aims high and managed to achieve everything that has to be achieved, so i believe they also can if they get an education.
    "It is very important that we help needy youths and children through giving them these opportunities in education. At least we would say that you tried and helped and they failed than to never try giving them a chance. "when i think of an idea i just try it and see where it will take me.am never afraid to try different things that have a positive impact on my life. i Put in my best in everything that i do and i surely succeed." that is exactly what other fellow needy youths feel but fail to express them selves because of not having an education
