Calvary Church, Livingstone

About this partner

Donate to this partner

Calvary Church, located in Livingstone, provides assistance to vulnerable families in their community.

Through the church's outreach, over 100 children from impoverished families are currently receiving school tuition scholarships. The majority of the children are between the ages of 3 and 10, but some youth are also being supported. For about two thirds of the children, this is the first time they have ever attended school.

The youngest children are attending a preschool established by Calvary Church where dedicated teachers work with the children, and where the children receive a nutritious lunch. Due to malnutrition and dire circumstances at home, almost one third of the children have been prioritized to receive food packs for their families.

By helping children to maintain their health, and receive an education through their formative years, the Church seeks to break the cycle of poverty for these children and their families.

And the new Calvary Church After School Club will provide:

  • Computer skills classes
  • Learning through play, for younger kids
  • Job skills & vocational training, for older youth
  • Regular checks on mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health
  • Computer skills classes
  • Food pantries for under-nourished children who need a healthy snack
  • Vocational and entrepreneurship classes for parents, to bolster their child’s environment

Current Project Highlight

Preschool program

Calvary Church currently supports 53 impoverished children to attend a preschool program run by the church. The children also receive a nutritious lunch. The families of these children would be unable to afford preschool elsewhere, and therefore would enter the school system without any foundation. With up to 100 children per class in public schools, those without a foundation can easily be left behind and get discouraged. Offering these vulnerable children a quality preschool education is an important aspect to helping them escape poverty.
