“If we are the future and we are dying, there is no future.”
With a population of fourteen million, orphans make up 5.6% of the population at over two million. HIV/AIDS affects 66% of Zambians. 46% of Zambia’s population is between the ranges of zero and fourteen years old.
In Simukale Village alone there is a large number of orphans who have no family unit to care for them. As a result they easily get involved in activities that hurt their well-being and destruct their character.
From the beginning, God’s love has been guiding everything we do and with the new addition of a children’s village (orphanage) there is no exception.
Our homes will consist of 8 children and 1 Jesus Christ believing widow
Activities like discipleship, homework, cooking meals, etc. will be done as a family.
By meeting these children right where they are we can ensure they grow up connected to their history
Being raised by Zambian house mom's will cultivate an atmosphere for teaching and tradition.
Our hope is that Luyando Children's Village will raise men and women who go out into their community, their nation, and the world to create change by sharing Jesus with others.
Spending time in community with successful agents of change inspires change.
Having a private school available to our kids with a smaller teacher to pupil ratio will provide them with a quality education they would not get at most government schools
A trade school on site so they can learn how to be a tailor, a carpenter, a mechanic, an electrician, etc. so that when they leave us they may be able to provide for themselves and their families
Luyando needs $200,000 to build the Children's Village and keep it staffed and running for the first 2 years. We add on to construction as the funds come in. That means we rely on your giving to make this a reality.
