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).

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

Christmas break!

As we hunker down this winter in the Northern Hemisphere, in Zambia our students are sweltering. They leave the hot dusty streets of Ngombe and walk with relief into the Chikumbuso compound where we have fresh running water to drink, cool classrooms with lots of windows, and a welcoming atmosphere that reduces temperatures and calms spirits.

It's hard to overestimate how much they will miss coming to Chikumbuso during their Christmas break. The regular meals, the access to internet and books, the camaraderie, the safety. These are things we take for granted, but that are a special relief for our students from the heat and misery that surrounds them. 

By sponsoring a classroom, you are making sure that we continue to be a place of relief and learning. Your support ensures we have the supplies we need to keep educating our kids. We hope you will be a "cool breeze" for our students this year!

A school year completed!

The students are almost done with their term, the year is coming to a close, and we have accomplished so much this year. We have added a seventh grade class, full of fantastic students. Adding this class is a big deal for our kids. All our top performers are accepted into secondary schools across Ngome and Lusaka, however, they must pay for tuition, supplies, exam fees, uniforms, and more. By adding the seventh grade class, we are able to continue to educate our students and keep them from dropping out due to lack of funds. 

Our seventh graders are some of the top performers in Zambia, and we are justifiably proud of them. By keeping them on campus, we are also making sure they eat at least once a day, that they are surrounded by mentors and those who love them, and that they have the tools needed to study. 

Thanks to your support we make all that happen! We wish you a merry Christmas and happy holidays!
