About the orphans
 
Over the last six years, more than 500 orphans have benefitted from this project in some way or another, for example through feeding programmes, financial support for education and health and medical care.

Below are some of the orphans that we have been able to support through primary, secondary and tertiarry education and the successes they have achieved.  These children that have completed their education are now in a position to support their sibblings and in some cases extended families.  Although these are beautiful success stories, there is still a great need for physical and educational support for the numerous orphans in Zambia.  
 
The success of the children below was only made possible through generous donations and fundraising efforts of people around the world.

Kelvin Munsaka
 
An orphan who has been with us from the very start and a child in our home for the past 5 years – we started to support Kelvin in a special orphan school (he was one of our local induna’s orphans), but we were not happy with the standard of the school and moved Kelvin to Choma Secondary School to redo grade 10. But the move and the standard were too difficult and he forged his marks to mislead his “mum”(me) and was caught when she wanted to thank the principle for giving the boy a chance! He was nearly expelled from the program, if it had not been for the principal begging us to give him another chance and from there he became an amazing young man and had 4 A’s in grade 12! 
He is dreaming of becoming a solicitor to help vulnerable people and orphans in the rural setting, but we cannot afford it –so he has to choose between teaching and nursing.
