Impact Network is a New York-based NGO that delivers innovative e-learning programs in rural Africa. We believe that every child deserves access to a quality education. By empowering teachers with tablets, activity ¬based lessons, support and weekly coaching, we make this possible for 6,000 students in rural Zambia. We developed a holistic education model called the eSchool 360, running currently in 44 schools, to sustain high-quality education year after year for less than $5 a month per student.  This is an exciting time in our organization history because in 2017 we launched a 35-school expansion with a randomized controlled trial evaluation in partnership with American Institutes for Research.


On Tuesday, October 23rd, we will be hosting our eighth annual Chefs for Impact gala, a culinary-themed event where guests will enjoy a multi-course gourmet menu presented by master chefs. Hosted at the classy Bowery Hotel, there will also be a cocktail reception, live and silent auctions with one-of-a-kind items, and more. Chefs for Impact is our largest fundraising platform, and 100% of the proceeds goes towards impacting our students who otherwise would not be able to go to school. 


Impact Network is seeking highly driven, enthusiastic individuals to join our host committee for our Chefs for Impact event.
