Choose Love


The difference you make brings immeasurable joy!
The difference you make brings immeasurable joy!

 Although Chikumbuso is following the governments restrictions for COVID, keeping classes to half their capacity and offering morning and afternoon seesions, there is still found amongst our students an excitement at the ability to be with friends, learn and have a good lunch even just for half a day. Walking by the windows of the classrooms you hear the "buzzing of bees" as the children absorb as much as they can from the lessons.  The teachers work over time to make this happen. We, at the Community Center, feel our life is full once more. It has been a long year.

Each one of our students has returned with a sense of anticipation despite their situations at home. Interviewing a variety of them we hear the struggle in their voices to share their reality with us. Their poverty is painful and difficult to voice.  Some go to bed hungry, others sleep on the floor, often their clothing reflects the homelife giving their teachers a "heads up".

Presently we have 350 students at our school and another 150 in high school.  We try our best to see each child as an individual, responding to their needs in love. This is the most improtant and we can not do it with out your help.


.. looking at life from the vantage point of love, we see our being and our joy increase to an extent that we give it away.      —Adam Bucko
