Zambia Winter/Spring Update

With the launch of the Zambia Learning Centres, children and young people will receive help with their schoolwork, learn computer skills, acquire vocational training, and be mentored for success through discipleship, and also health & nutrition information. Also, in 2022, emergency pandemic food relief wrapped up – many families made it through some very tough times thanks to Hope Story donor generosity!

Zambia Summer Update

It would be impossible to overestimate how much school children in Zambia – as young as 5 years old – need our help right now. There is a flood of children showing up for badly needed help at the new After School Clubs.

Zambia Winter Update

Our three church partners in Zambia are mobilized to serve vulnerable children in the population centres of Mongu, in western Zambia, and Livingstone in southern Zambia, with more than two-thirds of the country living below the poverty line. And with the exciting 2021 launch of the Zambia After-School Clubs with all 3 Zambia partners, this means that children and young people will receive help with their schoolwork, learn computer skills, acquire vocational training, and be mentored for success through discipleship and health & nutrition information, with a food pantry to ensure that children who need a snack will have one.

Tapiwa’s Story

Tapiwa is a 4-year-old girl who attends the preschool run by Calvary church, serving 45 children before COVID-19 forced its closure. She lives with six siblings and a single mother in a one-room unfinished house.

Joseph’s Story

This is Joseph. He is 11-years old and in grade 5. He has two sisters and one brother. His father is elderly and unable to work physically. The support of the church community has been essential to the family’s ongoing survival. Older brother Bernard (twenty-one) is the family’s only source of income – about $23 per month. This has to cover rent, food –everything. For this, he goes to the market and sells what he can of fried sausages, biscuits, and roasted groundnuts.

Zambia Fall Update

Zambia Fall Update

Our three church partners in Zambia are mobilized to serve vulnerable children in
the population centres of Mongu (western Zambia) and Livingstone (southern Zambia). With more than two-thirds of the country living below the poverty line, ministry teams search the neighbourhoods for children in
need, often giving from what little the congregation has while also praying with struggling families. Thanks to people like
you, at the beginning of 2020, children were receiving literacy support, food packs, and bible lessons. More than 350 children were provided with school fees – allowing many kids to attend school for the first time!
