Faith Children’s Village: A Ministry You Should Know

Faith Childrens Village

Faith Children’s Village in Kitwe, Zambia, exists to lead children into a relationship with Jesus Christ and disciple them to be Christ-like in actions and attitudes and to equip each child with life skills that will allow them to become productive Christian citizens. I have visited this amazing little ministry a couple of times and, most recently, prepared a video to show what it is all about. You can learn more about Faith Children’s Village by visiting

The little country of Zambia, nestled in the heart of Africa has one of the highest number of orphaned children of any country in the world. It is estimated that 27% of all children in Zambia have lost their mother, father or both parents. It is estimated by some that in the urban areas three-quarters of families are already caring for at least one orphaned child. The number of orphaned children who live on the streets in Zambia has increased 250% in the past ten years. The crisis, brought on by HIV/AIDS, exists in a country that is not capable of addressing the problem. In 2002 God provided 13 acres of land in a rural farm setting just 18 miles outside of Kitwe, Zambia. Property was cleared, roads graded and housing plots marked out. In May 2003 construction began and in September of 2004 Faith Children’s Village was officially opened. Learn more at
