We currently rent. Help us buy our own place. We want to buy an existing community school in Kamatipa, Kitwe, Zambia. There are two buildings, one building has two classrooms and an office, the other building is a house. There are on a 40m x 20m block.
Our company Nilina Hope Limited is based and registered in Zambia. The majority of us met on Facebook in 2015 with the intention of giving back to others, primarily giving food to children. In 2016 we registered the company Nilina Hope Limited. Our mission is to make a difference in the lives of children, especially vulnerable children and create the next generation of volunteers.
We are working on fixing our own challenges. But doing this with limited resources makes it more challenging. While we make efforts to build our own self-reliance capacity, we need help now. We believe "The future is already here - it's just not evenly distributed." – William Gibson, we are therefore making efforts to reach out to find others willing to do this remarkable and important work.
Having our own place will mean:
Reaching our goal will mean being able to buy the school, and exceeding our goal will mean moving onto phase two in which we install power, lighting, internet access and other improvements. Ideally settlement of the property will be before or by the 9th of April 2021. Help us bring the future to the children of Kamatipa in Kitwe, Zambia.
We value our children. We value our volunteers. We value an equitable world in which all human beings live with dignity. We take full responsibility for fixing our own challenges - our children, our responsibility.
We do our work every day because it is important work. Our kids need to be kids - to play, have fun, learn, feel safe and do the many things that other kids around the world do.
We want to help restore the dignity of their parents and guardians. For them to even be more proud, happy and joyful for their children, knowing that their futures are brighter.
