Chikumbuso

Chikumbuso means "Remembrance" our mission statement is to remember those who died (both family and friends), to remember where we came from (a place of poverty and hunger) and to remember to do for others (give back to the community).

Saying Goodbye

Last week Chikumbuso lost one of its cherished grandmothers. Let's call her "Esther". Esther joined Chikumbuso ten years ago after losing all eight of her children and her husband. She had seen great suffering in her life but was comforted and sustained by the new family that she found at Chikumbuso.  Everday her caregiver would visit Esther on her way to Chikumbuso providing emotional support as well as food and material comfort.

The power of Chikumbuso is that we are your family in life and that we are your family in death. She passed knowing that she would be buried with dignity and that her grandchildren would continue to have opportunitys and an education at Chikumbuso. Thanks to your support we have ben able to provide these things to Esther and her family.  Her neighbors and friends send you all their blessings for a job well done.

A Thank You Letter

I am sharing this letter with you all because these words echo the thoughts in my head as I thank God for each one of you and your commitment to educating girls in Zambia. I feel blessed.

Dear Mama LInda,

How are you by this time?

My name is...... one of your graduated children who was at Flying Angels Secondary school.  I am among those grade twelve students who completed in 2016.

I am writing this letter to you for the great job you have achieved in my life. It wasn't an easy thing to find people like you who have a heart to educate a girl child like me until the end. It takes people who have love and care to take someone else's child to school.  For this reason I say thank you so so much mama. You are really a blessing indeed to people who are surrounded by you. I am really grateful that I have completed my grade 12. Without your help mama I can't be the way I am right now. I know it has been a very long journey but here I am with great joy and a big smile on my face that you have managed to make me reach my last destiny.

I am so humbled mama, may the Almighty God continue blessing you abundantly for the mighty job you are offering to people.  I have much to say but only to shorten my words, you are my hero! and my inspiration!  I always will love you and remember your great work that you did for me.

Yours faithful,

Moving our donation page....

Dear friends,

Happy New Year!  In an effort to minimize reporting and maintain clarity of purpose we have chosen to shut down this donation page and would like to ask each of you as you support our students to do that through the Classroom Sponsorship project.

Secondary School & Supplies for Excelling Students has been a key point of encouragement for us and our students and we really would like to have you continue to support our students through Classroom Sponsorship.

We appreciate you and all that you have done to help our students to this point.

Many many blessings to you and your family for the new year.

Sincerely,

Linda
