Jesus, in his famous story of the Good Samaritan, insists that his followers do something about the pain and injustice we see all around. As a church we notice and respond to the needs of the vulnerable in our city. Join us in making a difference.
For this purpose, we have placed "Love Boxes" at all our Lusaka congregations. When you have excess items that can make a difference in the lives of others, just bring them along when you attend a meeting. If the item is too big, leave a note with details in the basket and collection can be arranged.
We partner with the following organisations & church:
Streetwise has a passion to make a difference in the lives of street children in Lusaka through engaging them on the streets, providing limited medical care and empowering them through art projects. Learn more.
Impact One Initiative
Impact One Initiative is a nonprofit organization providing vulnerable children in Zambia hope and a future through education. We believe that education has the potential to break the chains of oppression faced by many in Zambia. But too many children in Zambia never have the opportunity for a quality, life-changing education. Based in Lusaka, Impact One Initiative is equipping existing community schools to more effectively educate their students to impact their families and transform their community. We are giving untrained, volunteer teachers the resources and skills they so desperately need to become excellent at raising up tomorrow’s leaders.
