Loveness is a very bright girl who loves school, reading, playing soccer and netball. She has lived at the Children’s Home since 2014 with her twin brother, Mark. Their mother abandoned their family for another man when her and her brother were just toddlers. Their father cared for them for a while until he contracted a disease, which left him crippled and unable to work. Loveness has grown to be a spunky but responsible girl.
Ida lives with her family or 6 other siblings - including a pair of newborn twins - a very difficult thing in such poverty. She is very vulnerable because she is living with a stepfather who does not treat her well. We pray that she can find some way to not become a street kid, though she's run away before. She is bright and hard working, but just has many problems in her family. Pray for her.
George has always lived in a tenuous situation - his father is a rascal, making the marriage and sustenance unpredictable. They have suffered much as a family. Yet I see such potential in this one.
Mary's mother is living her stepdad who doesn't want any kids, so Mary stays with her aunt. Her aunt has a job but is struggling to support a house of six people. If Mary is sponsored, she'll be able to attend school and make a better life for herself.
Victoria is a very bright and reserved child. She always keeps herself neat and clean, though she lives in a very small hut with her mother and 4 siblings - all mud and thatch. Her village is the poorest, and all her relatives are single mothers with zero income. We pray that Victoria will have a chance to go to grade 12 or beyond - the only chance would be a sponsor.

She stays with a young man - semi married. Mother will watch child when she continues education.
Jordan is a sweet boy who loves following around his older brother, Vincent. He enjoys playing football and spends a lot of time by the river washing clothes and plates as well as fishing. It seems as though Jordan has not gone to school consistently because his family doesn’t always have the money to pay for his school fees. Sponsoring him would allow him to go to school consistently.
George is the oldest of two, living with his single mother in Singanga Village. The mother sells village beer to make a small income. Otherwise they have nothing and neither go to school. The mother has come to church and Bible studies at times, but it would be so wonderful to begin to disciple her children.
Grace is not even trying to go to school. Many kids try, then when they are turned away enough times they give up. She has not had anyone to pay for her schooling for a long time. She lives in our poorest village with 4 siblings and her mother. Her father died years ago.
Sharon is a beautiful young girl who recently joined the House of Moses with twelve years of painful experiences behind her. It is such a privilege to witness the transformation that happens---first the bath, the clean towel and bedsheets, clothing that fits, regular meals.... and more gradually, the inner changes that come from living in a loving family, learning boundaries and working together. Please pray that God would heal every wound, and that Sharon's life would be a testimony to his goodness!
Webbie's mother died recently and he is not getting much food or care.
Judith lives in Siamate village. She loves school and would spend all her time trying to read books if she could.

One day she hopes she can be a teacher.
Charity has lost both parents to disease - as so many of these kids have. She is staying with an uncle in a poor compound and has been allowed to come to school for free so far. We thank God for Charity. Please pray for her that she can overcome all the obsticals that she will face in her poverty.
Daniel is the 11-year old son of Mama Susan, our housemother who recently passed away. He and his older brother are being cared for in town by their aunt, who has no income. Daniel has a strong faith and was such an encouragement to his mother during her sickness, often coming to pray for her. Without assistance, he will not be able to continue his schooling. We want to honor Mama Sue's life by continuing to care for her sons.
Maggie is a double orphan, living with her grandmother for the past year since her parents' deaths. She is in Grade Three. There is no steady income of any kind supporting this makeshift family--grandma and an aunt are caring for seven children. The security of knowing that school expenses are covered will make a real difference for Maggie, and we trust she will also come to know the love of her heavenly Father.
Colleen has not been to school in over a year but still desires to become a doctor. He lives on his own as his parents are divorced and he is not wanted by the step-parent. With love and support, he would be encouraged to finish school , allowing him to become all he was created to be.

She is very competitive and loves any sort of game from football to netball to malabalaba (Zambian version of mancala). Paulina always has this twinkle in her eyes as if she’s ready for any challenge that might come her way.
Richard is a double orphan, which means that both of his parents have passed away. His favorite subject in school is social studies, and he wants to be in the military when he grows up. Sponsorship would give him the opportunity to fulfill his dreams and become what he was created to be.
Rodrick is from Singanga village. He has one older brother and a young sister. His father has worked for Love’s Door and is currently employed as the weekend night guard. Their family struggles to get by, but it seems as though Rodrick has been able to complete school through grade 3. He loves to play soccer and is often found playing here on the Love’s Door base.

Setina is a happy girl with many handicaps – it seems cerebrial malaria has impaired her speech, she has uncontrolled drooling and her left arm is atrophied. Perhaps medical attention would help her.

She is in grade 3, desires to learn, and has the sweetest smile.
Gibson is in a very vulnerable position. His father passed away and his mother has some mental disabilities. He seems to roam the village freely often playing with friends. Love’s Door helped his grandmother start a little store selling mealie, cooking oil, beans, and other basic supplies to help support the family.
Christobel is nine years old and doesn’t yet know how to write her name. She is the oldest girl and lives with her mother and stepfather. Her pregnant mother moves from man to man and Christobel is often left with caring for her two-year old half brother. Your sponsorship will make a world of difference for her!

Naomi is such a lovely child. She is currently living with her grandmother and a sibling. They have no income and their basic living needs are unable to be met.

She comes around Love’s Door frequently to play and spend time with her friends. She is quiet and shy, but seems to love learning.
Misoze is a sweet young lady. She tries to attend school, but is often chased because her family doesn’t have money to pay for her school fees.

Him and his brothers hang around the Love’s Door base a lot playing soccer even while all the other kids are in school. Richard is in a very vulnerable situation and could benefit from a sponsorship.
John is six years old, his father passed away when he was an infant and his mother works as a maid for very low pay. He has two older siblings--the oldest at age 9 goes to school in town, so any money mom makes goes to pay for those school fees.

Susan is one of four children in her family. They live in Lioka village. She is regularly kicked out of school because her family isn’t able to pay school fees.

Mike is a happy boy and never seems to be troubled by his poverty, though you can see that he needs more care. Pray for Mike that he can grow to be all that God created him for.
Twelve-year old Peterson's mother died when he was four. Because his father is afflicted with mental illness, his impoverished grandmother has cared for him all these years.

Judith came to the Children’s Home in 2017 and fit right in. Her spunky but loyal personality meshes very well with the other children.

Before coming to the Children’s Home she was living with her grandmother and many other cousins because her mother had left her there a few years back. Her grandfather was supporting the family, but he has passed away leaving very little income for the family. Judith is a wonderful girl who cannot wait to learn anything new.
