Chikumbuso Women and Orphans Project would like to thank all of you for the help you have been in getting children back into school.The new year begins in January in Zambia and families struggle to get school fees paid and uniforms made. Every day there is someone coming to the center looking for help. Today a beautiful girl from another area of town came by Chikumbuso. She had heard Chikumbuso helped orphans get to school and although she was not an orphan her parents were old and not able to send her. She is 18 years old and has not been in school for three years, not since her brother died. It seems that even when we set up “criteria” for those we should help there are always those few who come, sit and refuse to leave until a promise of help has been made. When I asked one of the widows what we should do she said, “Mama, we have to pay for her school, God sent her to us”. Thanks to the help we have been receiving at Global Giving she will be attending 10th grade this year! There are 20 more children on our list who need help, we are so thankful for your generosity.
