I used to volunteer with FLMI and was greatly hurt by their practices and manipulation of Americans. If you or your children are wanting to go with them I would HIGHLY advise not to. They manipulate Americans and make them believe that FLMI is the only way to help these children and then they don't even follow through with what they are saying they do. If you sponsor a child through them don't expect that money to ever go to the kid. They think all Zambians are trying to cheat them and refuse to work with local schools an pay school fees. Their Zambian staff is paid under wage and cannot provide for themselves. They are scared of the Americans who run Family Legacy and feel very taken advantage of. Until Americans figure out the truth this will keep going on forever. They need to be held accountable and it is scary to see the manipulation.
