Namumu Orphanage Center
in Siavonga, Zambia
About Our Partner
Namumu Orphanage Center (NOC) is a community-based program in Siavonga, Zambia. Namumu Orphanage’s primary mission is to ensure care and love for underprivileged orphans and vulnerable children. The center wants to offer them every chance for a normal childhood and to become responsible and independent adults. Most children coming to Namumu have had difficult lives as a result of poverty, death of parents due to HIV/AIDS, lack of love, or emotional stress. The center has become a healing place for them. Namumu provides elementary and high school education to all residents. Over 300 children, including those in residence, have access to elementary education at a community school started with the center’s involvement and now turned over to the community to benefit from government resources available to communities.
Despite the many issues that we have encountered and are still working through with Namumu’s board and staff, a few years ago, we celebrated three of Namumu’s children who graduated from high school with high scores and are now pursuing their university degrees in medical school, theology, and teacher training. One of these children, Malaki Habasimbi, is in his second year at Justo Mwale University.
The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $30,000 to feed, clothe, offer medical care and educate children at Namumu.
