A Field of Green
The long awaited green bags of California unfortunately missed the Christmas party. Little did we know that they would arrive just in time for the first day of school!
A California business, NextRoll, generously packed and shipped to Chikumbuso 500 green knapsacks filled with school supplies; pencils, pens, sharpeners, erasers, scissors and more.
Imagine 500 green bags parading their way through the compound to our local K-12 school! As our classrooms are free to all who attend this donation of school supplies for each and every child is such a blessing to our students, teachers, and budget! What would we do with out the generosity of others?
This community, Chikumbuso, is located on the outskirts of Lusaka, Zambia called Ng’ombe. It started with 7 widows who had no resources, no assets, no English skills, and no community support.The transformation that transpired over the past 15 years has brought about a truly loving community of support and encouragement to those affected by AIDS whether they be our widows, single moms, students, or grandmothers. Chikumbuso was formed by the women of the community and they have kept their connections with the broader public by remembering others affected by AIDS and the long term commitment to changing lives.
You can be a part of this community. Your gift may not be 500 Green bags but it will be, just the same, a blessing to our students and classrooms. Please help support our ever growing outreach to those who would not be able to attend school without us.
