I had the amazing opportunity to volunteer at Chikumbuso. This was a life changing experience - the organization itself is amazing and the people who work there and the kids are the kindest people I have ever come across.
I met the administration team and friends of Chikumbuso several years back while on a mission trip to Lusaka Zambia. I immediately fell in love with this family of ladies and children. The desire to support and build up families touched deep in my heart. After several visits throughout the next few years and many bag purchases, I had the opportunity to introduce this ministry, it's founder and their products at a Woman's event at my home church. I was honored and proud to bring more awareness to this great ministry.
Just helped a little as a volunteer. Was proud to do so. They are doing amazing things for children and women. All these people deserve a lot of respect.
This nonprofit has changed many lives. Not only, as is stated in the review above, but in the lives of those that donate. My classroom recycles items and sends the funds to support Chikumbuso. We focus on the school for orphans. My students (and the whole community we live in) know about the wonderful experiences happening at this school, we have gathered together to embrace the belief that all children should be educated. We have been part of this nonprofit for 7 years, many businesses have donated their support in shipping books and donating recyclable items. Children have offered up their savings to make Zambian children's lives better in a country so different than theirs. This nonprofit has connected our community of learners with another community. Our lives have become richer.
This is such an amazing and life-changing organization. I've seen women's lives changed economically, personally, and spiritually. Not only are widows and orphans supported, they have become donors themselves, giving back to their community and helping others move out of poverty. I've never seen such direct and life-changing impact by a nonprofit organization. I'm especially impressed that the leadership has mostly transitioned to Zambian women who have stepped up to the challenge.
