Meet Swilangi Tembo

Meet Swilangi, a sweet little ten-year-old girl who lives with a single mother. Since her father died a few years ago, her mother has supported her family by selling vegetables in the market. But it’s a very competitive job, making it difficult to earn enough money for food and education each day. They need your help!

Sponsor a Child for School for $38/month!

Start Sponsoring a Child Today!

In America, everyone has the opportunity to go to school.  In Zambia, children may only receive an education if the parents can pay the school fees, purchase uniforms and purchase the school supplies. This is impossible for people who are poor.  For the Grandma who is the caretaker of her 6 grandchildren and has very little income.  For the Aunty who takes in her niece after her mother died of AIDs and is trying to make ends meet with her now 4 children.   In the poor communities in Zambia, it’s virtually impossible for a child to go to school.

This sponsorship opportunity is unique in that you are literally “helping the least of these” in Jesus’ name and sending a child to school who has no means to attend – it’s life changing for them!

Better yet, your tax-deductible gift of just $38 a month enables an orphan living in some of the worst conditions inside the village of Twashuka, Zambia to receive a Christian education at the school and be apart of the loving community of Reaching the Heart of Zambia.

Your support will allow a child to:

  • Join a loving Christian community right in their village
  • Receive nutritious food
  • Receive health and hygiene training
  • Receive daily education based on the Bible
  • Learn life skills that will help them start a business or get a job in the future
  • Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children
  • Most importantly, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God.

When you sponsor a child, you will join a growing community of people are making a difference in the village of Twashuka for the Glory of God!  We are investing in the hearts of the children so that they will grow up learning a Biblical worldview and how they can glorify God in whatever they do!

We will also do our best to connect you personally with your child and give you updates on how they are doing.  If you’re up for it, you might even have a chance to meet your child some day!

Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.
