WHO WE SUPPORT
A local charity in Livingstone which provides free therapeutic and educational services for children with disabilities. The families involved with the Mama Bakhita constitute the main community aided by the AACDP.
Members of the Mama Bakhita community have established a communal farm to provide a real and sustainable solution to food insecurity for the years to come.
A cooperative of 12 mothers of children who attend school at the Mama Bakhita. They produce one-of-a-kind, handmade, natural fabric dolls, featuring five skin tones representing the peoples of the world.
A rural women's economic empowerment project started by Sister Immaculata Mulyei. The 10 women grow sisal, then use it to make bags for sale.
Motivated young Zambians without means are matched with American donors who pay for portions of their education from high school through university.
Monthly deliveries of food staples to the 24 families served by the Mama Bakhita. The pandemic has tripled the price of food in recent months and put many people out of work.
Relief for the community's survival during and after natural disasters, such as the flood in Jack Mwmanapapa in 2014, the catastrophic drought of 2019, and the current situation resulting from the world health crisis.
As the children of the Mama Bakhita Cheshire School grow up, they usually still need a lot of help. But inevitably, there comes a time when their aging relatives can no longer care for them.
