With Your Help, Love Grows – 2011 Holiday Angel Project

Temwani Children’s Foundation’s Holiday Angel Project, provides essential clothing, hygiene and  school supplies to orphaned and vulnerable children of the Ngombe neighborhood,  in Lusaka, Zambia.

Last year, more than 200 students at three schools and a home for girls were given toothbrushes, socks, t-shirts, educational books and interactive toys. 

The children were grateful for all of the gifts, but when we brought out the soccer balls and jump ropes at PaKachele Primary School, the kids went wild! More recently, the school hosted intramural sports competitions with other area schools, building confidence and teamwork among the children.

Additionally, students at PaKachele School received uniforms (seen below) tailored by the Mapalo Women’s sewing group of Ngombe and sweaters produced on a knitting machine donated through the Temwani Children’s Foundation in 2006.

With simple basic tools, orphaned and vulnerable children can grow and thrive! This year, we are striving to provide gifts to 300 children!

$25 or more ensures that each child receives a school sweater or uniform, toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and school supplies.

With your help, love grows: Annual Campaign 2011

heart

Lackson is one of the fast-growing, bright-eyed young shoots attending the PaKachele Primary School, the school your contributions have helped to build in Lusaka, Zambia. A second grader, he dreams of growing up to be a doctor who will “give injections and save lives.”

Lackson with Grandparents

Lackson, age 7, lives with loving grandparents who struggle to provide him with nutritious food and a reliable roof over his head. With your help, he is now a growing, thriving, ambitious second grader at PaKachele Primary School.

In order to help Lackson reach his dreams, the PaKachele School needs to be expanded to hold grades 4-7, new teachers need to be hired, and two meals need to be provided to students every day.

Please GIVE to our 2011 Annual Campaign to ensure a brighter future for Lackson and other orphaned and vulnerable children in Zambia. Thank you!

Unity Church of Peace in Tucson, Arizona

“I’m enjoying bringing Grace into my prayer and meditation space each day. I feel on some level she and I are becoming friends.” –Marcia Breitenbach of Unity Church.

After viewing a video on the conditions of orphans across the globe, Unity Church of Peace members Kat Domet and Marcia Breitenbach were inspired to find some way to assist.

In May of 2010, the Temwani Children’s Foundation was chosen as the beneficiary of the monthly outreach giving program, and a fall potluck was held to support the feeding program at the PaKachele Primary School.  Since 2010, Unity Church has raised over $1,645 through their outreach giving program and a World Food Day Potluck.

Temwani board member, Leah Berger, visited Unity Church and presented a slideshow about the school and its students. In addition, members of the congregation volunteered to be a part of a prayer exchange with the communities served by Temwani. Read more
