Since returning from our first visit to Zambia in 2015 we have developed a “Partnership Across the Miles” with Hope in Christ, which partners our home Church in Chepstow, the Christian Service Centre Church in Arizona & other friends in the USA & UK who fore-mostly have committed to pray regularly but have also funded a variety of projects at Hope in Christ. The motto of Hope in Christ Orphanage / School which you see painted on the wall when you enter the site is “The distance between success and failure is action”. From our visit in June 2018 we were encouraged to see the difference that the "action" of people giving generous donations was making to the lives of children & people connected with Hope in Christ.
The Orphanage school currently educates 156 children, in 5 classes with room for up to 30 of those children to be housed on the site; the others live with family members or foster parents in the local “shanty compound.” The on-going primary challenges are providing a daily meal for the children, maintaining a good standard of education by continuing to employ trained teachers and having enough resources.
Supporting Hope in Christ, Lusaka Zambia
Secondary School for Hope in Christ Young People - Secondary School education in Zambia is over a 5 year period; it’s not free but fee based, costing around £200 or US$260 to educate each child for one year, including uniforms & resources needed by the young people. In 2018, nineteen orphans who had no hope of further education from Hope in Christ school were sponsored by generous donations to go to Secondary School. When we visited Zambia in June this year we met the young people, who were so very grateful for the support; it was our privilege to hear them share their stories & dreams; for example Mary who was orphaned at 2 years old wants to become a Doctor & Michael wants to be a Policeman. Whatever you can give to help these young people continue with their education in January 2019, as the new school year starts in Zambia will make such an amazing difference to their lives.
