Community Updates

THIS COMMUNITY IS ONE OF OUR SPONSORED COMMUNITIES click to learn more

We work in communities throughout the world. Each community is unique and its resource needs vary. All our teams are committed to transformation. The community highlighted here is poised for growth. They're eager to connect with financial partners, organizational partners, and new strategic personnel. You can play a key role.



Community Overview

Team Zambia is a community transformation ministry that God will use to impact a multitude of areas such as extreme poverty, gender based violence (GBV), oppression of women, spiritual education, and discipleship to name just a few. This is a holistic approach to sharing the gospel—where those who are hungry now have access to food, those who are enslaved have access to freedom, and those who are blind have the light of Jesus shining in the darkness where hope is restored.

We are praying for those that will join us in this mission to transform the community of Chibolya in Chongwe, Zambia. Those who might have a burden for orphans or children, education, HIV/AIDS awareness, food and agricultural (small scale), entrepreneurial training, Biblical training, medical, spiritual healing/counseling, or addiction recovery; along with those who have the same burden for women/girls/prostitutes, men or discipleship as we do! Or there might be something you have a burden for that we haven't mentioned! Let's talk!

Our Response

Ministering to girls and women who are prostituting, and other vulnerable women, we pray to see transformed lives through relationship, Bible study and a future drop-in center or safe-house as the need arises. We will also help women address the spiritual and emotional healing many of them need due to abuse, rape and other issues. We see the use of women's conferences and other workshops along with Biblical training and developing deep relationships with the women and girls as some of the tools that will bring freedom and wholeness and life in Christ.

We also focus on ministry to the men of Zambia by working with them on sustainability programs and community development opportunities. This will include many of the things stated above but for men, like men's/Pastor's conferences, Bible study, teaching and real, honest, open, relationships. We embrace this challenge with Jesus, as well. With this question to guide us... What has God called men to be? Not culture, not tradition, not circumstances and not ourselves, but God.

Anticipated Results

When Chibolya has been transformed by the power of God, no one will be invisible and everyone will have access to food, freedom, and forgiveness.

OUR APPROACH
INTEGRATED COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION

Enter
Evaluate and Engage
Expand

ENTER

When we enter a community, we seek to relate to and understand the community through the eyes of Jesus. This includes pre-training and ongoing on-field research.

EVALUATE and ENGAGE

We repeat a collaborative cycle that aims to work alongside others in the community to identify and assess both needs and resources. Alongside the community, we encourage initiatives guided by a strategy and help implement them.

EXPAND

As transformation takes hold in a community our role changes. We avoid creating unhealthy dependencies and focus on what Jesus is doing within the community. This typically leads to expansion as transformation impacts surrounding communities.

Projects

Project

Chibolya Agriculture

Description

Zambia is ranked as one of the poorest nations and is desperately trying to rise out of poverty. Seven of ten people there live on less than $2 per day and will do and sell whatever they can to make ends meet. The agriculture of Zambia is a mix of commercial, small scale and subsistence farms. Subsistence farmers, who make up the largest percentage of farmers in Zambia, are the focus of our work in Chibolya. Current farming practices in this extremely poor region do not provide enough produce to sustain even their own families, forcing some to starve or even sell themselves to survive. 

Project

DaysforGirls Project

Description

Situated in one of the poorest countries in sub-Saharan Africa, this community of approximately 4,500 people face a number of spiritual, economic, and humanitarian challenges. Specifically, girls beginning around age 12 are missing up to 5 days of school per month due to the challenges that stem from their monthly menstrual cycle. Disposable Feminine hygiene products are expensive and most have to do without and end up staying home or using unhealthy and unsanitary options. Missing this many days leads to dropping out of school without a marketable skill and ending up in prostitution. Reusable monthly hygiene kits are a sanitary, effective solution to an obvious need and will help keep teenage girls in school every day of the month.
