83% of rural Zambians live on less than $1.90 a day.
Launch a farming business
A rural farming family in Zambia doesn’t have money to send their kids to school, and they don’t have much more to eat than the little cassava they grow.
But, if they had high quality seeds, a goat to provide fertilizer, and learned some new planting techniques, their harvest would multiply dramatically.
A bigger harvest means more income, and more income means they can break the chains of poverty for their family.
Equip a farmer with vital agricultural training and a small loan to purchase high-quality seeds and tools that will set them up for success.
Help a child get a life-changing surgery or prosthetics
In Zambia, there’s a health crisis of children born with physical deformities or suffering from amputations and other medical issues.
These precious children are often viewed as cursed. They live isolated lives at home, ashamed and hopeless.
There are hospitals that will provide life-changing surgeries and prosthetics, but getting there can be a two-day journey, and they can’t afford the transportation back and forth for treatment and follow-up.
Without surgery or prosthetics, some of these kids may never go to school, be able to support themselves, or grow up to marry and have families of their own.
Help cover travel expenses to hospitals so children can get the help they desperately need.
Triple a farmer’s income
A farmer toils hard under the blazing African sun, and when he finally reaps his harvest, he’s desperate for cash, so he sells his crops for rock bottom prices.
If only he had access to a mill to grind his seeds into flour before selling it, he could triple his profit.
That would change everything for him and his family, who are living hand-to-mouth, struggling to eke out a living through farming.
Help bring mills and other small business opportunities to rural farmers.
Zambia was one of the African countries hardest hit by the HIV/AIDS crisis. Nearly half of their 14.6 million people are 14 years old or younger. So many people are living in deep poverty, barely surviving.
We’re working with local churches to help not just one child here and there, or one rural farming family, but to raise the standard of living and infrastructure for entire communities. With Allies like you we’ve built preschools, installed mills, drilled wells, helped children get life-changing medical care, and trained pastors, teachers and farmers to be better equipped and more effective in all that they do.
But yet there’s so much more that still needs to be done. And we can’t do it without your help.
This Christmas, give a gift that won’t be returned or forgotten, and instead bring Hope and health to Zambians today.
Your gift today will be used to fund all of our life-changing projects in Zambia and around the world.
