“On our September ‘18 Zambia trip, we met a 4 year old girl named Samantha. She was one of the many orphans in the country, but one of the few that were able to live in an orphanage. The orphanage that she lived in, like many others in Zambia, was hardly a place to call home. 4 walls and someone to oversee them was the extent of care extended to these orphans ranging from 3 months to 4 years. We found out Monday morning that she died that night from a disease caused by malnutrition. Children like Samantha are perishing DAILY. According to studies, there are over 1.4 million orphans in Zambia. With the country being similar to the size of Texas, this gives Zambia the highest per capita orphan rate in the world.
2019- Build 10 Wells in the bush in Eastern Zambia, Africa
Over 5 millions Zambians lack clean drinking water. Digging wells is an effective way to provide safe and reliable water. A well can transform a community overnight. One well can literally change hundreds of lives. Our goal is to dig 10 new wells around Chipata in Eastern Zambia. The wells are just the beginning of our investment in these communities.
2020- Build 2 orphanages in the bush in Northern Zambia, Africa
Orphans make up over 1 million of Zambia’s population, which is about 6 % of all Zambians. Zambia has not yet developed the economic or social stability to provide for all of these children. Many are left to fend for themselves. Our vision is to build 2 orphanages (1 boys home and 1 girls homes) outside of Kitwe in the Copperbelt region of Zambia. We believe that these children deserve the love and support of a family. It is our goal that the orphanages through sponsors, staff, and the other children can be that family.
