In 2000, 25 orphaned or vulnerable children, living in Chipulukusu, a shanty compound near Ndola, Zambia, started to meet in a derelict building.
Sitting on the dirt ground, they were eager to learn, despite no proper classroom, blackboard or books. Lessons stopped at 12 noon when the sun was too hot.
Today over 500 orphaned or vulnerable children attend Hands of Compassion School
Living in extreme poverty, they have lost their parents as a result of an AIDS related illness.
If they can not go to school, what hope do they have? They face a life of destitution.
We provide free primary education from Nursery, Grades One to Seven and assist in sponsoring them to Government school from Grades Eight to Twelve, by contributing towards paying their Government school fees and uniform.
Hands of Compassion Charitable Foundation
is a registered charity whose sole objective is to help the school in Zambia through consultation and financial support. The Trustees are currently wishing to refine the Objects in the Charity’s Trust Deed to enable moving on to supporting other educational projects as well in Zambia.
Our core values, which underpin all our activities are Christian focused, in serving the poor and needy people, showing love and compassion in all we do.
