We started a school for at-risk children in the community to help them better prepare for their schooling experience and currently have a preschool through 2nd grade with 45 students! We are hoping to add a grade each year as long as we are able to help these kids get a great education. 50% of Zambia's population is under the age of 15! So there is lots of opportunity for loving them and pointing them on their way. Hannah Mercer and Robin Enright are instrumental in guiding the direction of the school.
"God's kids" is the name given to the afternoon ministries here for children. Lorraine Enright was the driving force behind the childrens' ministries until her recent passing. She supervised after school programs for children in neighboring towns and villages each day of the week from Monday to Friday, but this role is rnow held by Mama Therese (Pastor Kilembo's wife) who has done a wonderful job taking over.
