I want to thank all of you for your continued generous support of the Zambia orphanage & school sponsorship. Life seems fairly normal there, with the usual struggles, of course. One of our college students has had some difficulties but with his sponsor's kind understanding and continued support he should finish in a couple of terms.
Victoria and her family suffered the tragic loss of her 4 month old granddaughter this past October. Pray for the family.
There are no current plans to travel to Zambia, but we will try to get pictures of the children to you.
Be blessed my friends,
Director of the Orphanage in Zambia
A Letter of Appreciation from Derrick Lyainga
Dear Aunt candy,
Greetings to you and the family, my name's are Derrick Lyainga one of the beneficiary of your sponsorship. I am a double orphan, i completed school but I could not further my studies because I had no one to pay for my education I was in hopeless situation and I always prayed to God to send me a helper and God answered my prayers by sending you to be my helper through Rev Victoria Iliamupu.
I am writing this message to convey my honest and genuine gratitude and appreciation to you for sponsoring my studies from 2018-2022. Your scholarship is priceless and will always be treasured in my heart. I completed my studies in 2020 and I graduated in 2021 with a diploma in computer studies and luckily I was employed this year by the government of Zambia as a computer studies secondary school teacher.
Aunt candy becoming a computer studies teacher has always been my dream and Thank you so much for helping me attain one of my greatest dreams. God bless you and your family.
This is Ethel. She finished her college and is preparing for graduation day. Thank you for your generous support in making Ethel's graduation day possible. Please pray along with us that Ethel will find a good job.
Womba Chikoko is doing well and is in the 3rd grade. In January 2021 she will be in the 4th grade. She is very helpful at the orphanage.
Womba is 8 years old and double orphaned. She was living with the elder sister to her mother. However, her Aunt is now very ill. Womba had stopped going to School, and had no permanent home. She was brought to the orphange and is now very happy and able to continue with her schooling.
