unto the least of these

Feeding  Their  Minds


Police Officer, Pilot, Doctor, Teacher, Soldier, Nurse.....

Children everywhere dream about what they want to be when they grow up.  One of the biggest obstacles standing between the children in the village of Mpyupyu and their dreams is an education.  Help this generation weave their dreams and give them Hope for the Future.



Here, a local teacher took it upon himself to tutor the new students after school.  

They have set up their makeshift classroom behind the church in Mpyupyu.

Year Three

2020 - 2021

With a church to feed the village spiritually and a feeding center to feed the orphans physically, we decided to feed their dreams.  Children in Mpyupyu cannot attend school if they do not have a uniform and cannot pay the school fees.  This is about $25 for the year.  While this may not seem like much to us, it is an astronomical amount for many of the families in Mpyupyu.

Feeding  Their  Body

There are many orphans in the village of Mpyupyu.   Supporting them through the feeding center means they can have nutritious meals each day.  For most, these meals mean the difference between life and death.  Besides preventing starvation, well fed bodies are healthier and able to fight disease.


This is not a far away charity, we visit these children annually, and have seen the difference in their health and growth.  There is a waiting list, so would you consider $35 to feed a child for a month?  You can also sponsor a specific child and provide a longer sponsorship.    

February 2021:  Urgent Need

Seven sponsors have had to give up their children due to different circumstances.  We are looking for seven people to replace them, so that we can continue to feed these children at the feeding center in Mpyupyu.  Please prayerfully consider taking care of the physical needs of one of these children.

CONTINUING THEIR EDUCATION

HIGH SCHOOL

Three of our students in Mpyupyu passed their national exams and were able to continue on to high school. High School is much more expensive than primary school, especially if you are assigned to a high school far from your village. These students have been sponsored for two years of high school, but need sponsors for the 2021-2022 term.  

  • Lekeleni Simion

    She was selected to attend Katamba Secondary School and would like to become a nurse. She is an orphan and lives with her grandmother who can not afford to send her to High School. Lekeleni's tuition and uniforms are $210 each year.

  • Nester Benson

    She lives with her mother and brother. Their father abandoned them many years ago. She wants to become a nurse. Her annual tuition and uniforms to attend St. Michael's Secondary School is $210 each year.


  • Francis Zebe

    He was selected to go to a high school in Blantyre and he hopes to become a journalist. Blantyre is about 60 miles from his home, so he will have to pay for boarding and meals along with the regular fees and expenses. While he is blessed with a father and mother in the home, and they are able to provide for his supplies, part of his food and transportation, they are still unable to provide the full amount needed. His tuition, uniforms and boarding is $690 per school year.
