Found on the outskirts of Ng’ombe Compound in what was once an old bar and brothel lays Chikumbuso. Remodeled it has become a collective of individuals forming a widely successful integrated grassroots community project.
As a community we have dedicated ourselves over the span of fifteen years to helping one person at a time and have grown from 1 widow to seven and then on to changing thousands of lives. Chikumbuso runs a K-7 school at our community center, educates 150 secondary students, and over 80 collegiate on a yearly basis.
What makes the difference in these students lives is you.
Mercy was a sponsored child at Chikumbuso who went through our K-12 program. Along with an education and a monthly food stipend Mercy gained confidence. Her confidence came in knowing that a woman in America cared about her. Today Mercy is a college graduate and is employed at Chikumbuso as the first grade teacher.
The Difference is... what you do for someone else.
