Dedicated to helping Zambian orphans and villagers find their true Identity in Christ, God-given Purpose in life, while giving them Empowerment to fulfill the call of God on their lives.
Our vision came out of the need we saw from working in orphanages throughout Livingstone over the past 8 years. Livingstone has the highest AIDS rate, 1 in 3 people die of AIDS and AIDS related illnesses daily, leaving behind 4-6 children on average to fend for themselves. Zambia also has more orphans per capita than any other country in Sub Saharan Africa lending itself to many organizations opening orphanages there. Most of the orphanages are foreign funded and try to meet the children’s basic medical care, food and clothing requirements, and very basic educational needs. Once the children reach a certain age they are turned away from the orphanage and forced to go back into the society in which they originally came, but with little to no life skills training, little to no counseling from all of the trauma and loss they have endured throughout their youth, with no family to belong to or home to call their own, they now become products of a very harsh poverty society with little to no hope for their future. Unable to find or qualify for jobs many turn to drugs, alcohol, theft, and prostitution.
How we will achieve this
We intend to build a Mission Centre in Livingstone, Zambia for young adult AIDS orphans, rural pastors, and the local mission community. There are several phases to our vision which include building and running a Prayer Counseling Centre, Discipleship Centre, Life Skills Training Centre, and an Employment Centre. In 2013 we opened Window into Africa Gallery inside the Livingstone International Airport to generate funds for our projects. Along with the help of local and international funding, partnerships with individuals and organizations who would like to come alongside of us and assist us with our vision, we believe together as one body we will achieve our mission.
