Zambia – Partners Across The Miles – Hope In Christ
Hope in Christ ministry is in Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, and runs a Church, Orphanage, School & Clinic sited on the edge of the Chipata shanty compound, which houses 45,000 people in 2 square miles. Pastor Paul Swala & his wife Mary had the vision & started the School & Orphanage in 2008, in faith that the Lord would provide.
The school has 5 classes and provides free primary education for up to 156 children from 4 to 11 years, with up to 32 orphans housed on site.
The Hope in Christ motto is “The distance between success & failure is action”. Since returning from Zambia in 2015 we have developed a “Partnership Across the Miles” where friends from Chepstow, other parts of the UK and the USA have helped fund meals for the children, education & resources.
