At a glance:
Known as the Republic of Zambia, this country is landlocked in Southern Africa.
Ongoing challenges include:
- rural poverty and high unemployment
- lack of access to clean water
- lack of adequate sanitation
- increased risk of teenage pregnancy
So, in the face of these and other harsh realities in Zambia,
the Lifesong team currently reaches over 900 children. With your help, we provide holistic care and education. And—most importantly—we share the good news of the Gospel. And these children know they are loved.
Specifically, our students range in age from preschool through the 13th grade. Each one receives all learning materials, quality instruction, medical care, two daily meals, and discipleship. All at no cost to them or their families.
Nearly 100% of our students in Zambia pass their National Exams. Praise God!
Additionally, Lifesong Vocational School instructs recent grads. Classes include auto mechanics, agriculture, and food production. So for students who can’t attend University, this is a critical way to gain employable skills.
Finally, thank you for loving and supporting the kids in Zambia!
