The Lusungu Orphanage came to life in 1997, at the Praying Mountain Stones, which is our current site. My wife and I used Praying Mountain Stones as a place to meet our God in fasting and prayer.
We--Bishop Caddie Ng’ambi & Rodah Kundah Ng’ambi--being pastors--started the orphanage because many orphaned children were coming to our home, seeking food and a place to sleep. Even for a night we became like a mother and a father to them.
We extended our hearts to these children. With the help of local government council--who provided land--Lusungu Children's Home was officially established.
During strategic planning we were guided by Zambia’s efforts to achieve the Millennium Goals. Within that context, and bearing in mind the importance of educating female children, we constructed Lusungu Children's Home.
We also recognize that the time has come to introduce an Early Childhood Program (ages 3-6). Having this Centre will help us open the door to learning, health monitoring and enhanced psychosocial well-being for our youngest community members.
We aim to help illiterate youth who are orphans in the community gain the skills they need to understand and pursue their rights and entitlements in the areas of training, education, health and welfare. We can help achieve this by training them in literacy and mathematical skills.
