Chikumbuso was founded in 2005 by Linda Wilkinson, a social worker from the United States. The organization began as a small community project, but has since grown into a full-scale operation that serves over 500 women and children in the Lusaka area.
One of the key programs offered by Chikumbuso is their school, which provides education to over 400 children. The school offers a comprehensive curriculum that includes academic subjects as well as life skills training and career guidance. Additionally, Chikumbuso provides vocational training to women, including sewing and tailoring classes, as well as business skills training to help women start and grow their own businesses.
Chikumbuso is also committed to community development and outreach, and works closely with local leaders and organizations to provide support to families affected by poverty and HIV/AIDS. The organization runs a community center that serves as a hub for community activities and events, and also provides counseling and support services to women and children.
Chikumbuso Women and Orphans Project is doing important work in the Lusaka community by providing education, vocational training, and community support to women and children affected by poverty and HIV/AIDS. Their commitment to empowering women and children is making a real difference in the lives of those they serve.
