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).

Final Project Report

Our library was very fortunate to receive a donation of 10 laptops from Pfizer for our library! We will be using these laptops for the further education of our teachers, and also for several of our adult students. We hope that by connecting them to the world of technology that they will be able to bring world-wide views to our students. Now that we have reached our objective for this project, we are going to deactivate it. Thank you so much to everybody that donated to our goal, and we hope that you will continue to keep Chikumbuso in mind for future donations! We have updated our fundraising page, with our new needs and goals, so please check those out so that we can continue to be a thriving community!

Grandmas are happy to receive monthly food staples

We received our monthly delivery of mealie meal this past Friday, and the bags have been travelling across the compound to Chikumbuso’s adopted “grandmothers” over the past few days. Our widows deliver critical food supplies to the grandmothers each month, and check in on them frequently. This is just one of the ways that Chikumbuso cares for the community.

The grandma pictured here is Mainess. She is sitting next to her monthly supply of mealie meal, which she will use to make the Zambian food staple n’shima. Since all of her children have passed away, Mainess is cared for by our widow Barbara. She is thankful for the food and love that she gets from Chikumbuso. Thank you for providing for vulnerable elderly women in N’gombe by donating to this fund.

Sponsor our Second Grade Classroom!

Sponsor our Second Grade Class

Chikumbuso is currently recruiting a new second grade teacher. When our former second grade teacher left the school last year, our principal Gertrude took over her class. Gertrude has done a wonderful job of educating her full classroom of sweet second graders, but it has not been easy. Gertrude has many responsibilities at Chikumbuso already, including managing the school operations, caring for the children who live in Chikumbuso’s on-campus safe haven, and overseeing the widows’ bag-weaving and sales. Needless to say, she is quite overwhelmed.

By supporting the classroom sponsorship fund, you will help us to pay the salary for a new second grade teacher. The sponsorship will also provide the classroom with new learning supplies and materials. Chikumbuso’s second graders are bright and driven. Help us to give them the vibrant learning environment that they deserve.
