As the holiday season is upon us, we at Chikumbuso are preparing to celebrate with family and friends, as well as the entire Chikumbuso community - whether here in Zambia or across the sea in the U.S.. We are so grateful for all the folks who make up our circle of love and count our blessings that each of you is in our lives.
The kids at Chikumbuso are not like students in other places. As their holiday break approaches, they are not eagerly anticipating lazy mornings, and free play afternoons, but rather, look for excuses to come back to the school - a place of safety, love, and community. Our library stays open during the break, to give the students a place to read, to chat, to learn, and more. They love coming in and finding their friends, picking up a new book, or practicing their computer skills. We love that they are not on the streets or worse.
Please consider supporting our library - a colorful, fun, and vibrant place for our children to stay during the break.
