Join us in celebrating our recent education, clean water, and healthcare clinic projects, and to help raise funds for a new school and a mini hospital in Zambia.

Count Me In

In the past year, our donors have enabled the construction and dedication of three new schools, plus the groundbreaking of another three schools and a new health clinic, in rural Zambia. Areas that are so remote that community members had no other options -- and will now have access to education and basic health care. Thousands of people’s lives are being fundamentally changed as we start to break the cycles of illiteracy, disease, poverty, and gender inequality.

We invite you to join us as we reflect on a wonderful year, and, more importantly, as we launch our vision for 2020. In Zambia, the health care infrastructure is sorely lacking in the rural communities and the few makeshift clinics they organize take place under trees or in run-down buildings. An absence of school facilities and resources results in impossible learning conditions for children — they come to school hungry, they have no protection from the sun, wind or rain, there are few desks or supplies, and qualified teachers (often volunteers) face hardships that keep them from showing up. All proceeds from this event will go towards the construction of a desperately needed mini hospital and a new school in Ipongo (Pop. 9,899), both in 2020.

Imagine what we can do together. Imagine if, in one night, we could fully fund a school and mini-hospital for communities in this very remote area.
