Ministry Description
We provide emergency care for orphaned and abandoned infants and young children until we can identify and prepare natural/kinship or foster/adopt families. Preventing abandonment, we supply milk, medicine, food supplements, counseling and microenterprise connections to widows/families in crisis. We partner with local churches to give a primary education to impoverished children and operate a quality middle/high school for orphans and children living in poor households who are unable to attend other schools.

Frequently we have a child whose parents have died, but they have grandparents or aunts and uncles in another town or village. We have to go find these relatives to find out if they can accept the child into their family. Then we have to take the child to the family. This is a great investment because it means an orphaned child can once again be with family. In the comments page of our website, indicate "transport to family".
Each Christmas we give the children in our rescue homes a Christmas party where they receive clothing and a toy along with a special meal with cake and ice cream and a jumping castle. We also give the staff and their families a chicken and bag of mealie meal and this year we want to give the families in our Milk and Medicine program a chicken, a bag of candy and a sharable toy, like a ball, to bless their Christmas. $20 covers one child and we have 255. Thank you!
An estimated 23% of Zambian children under 15 have lost one or both parents to AIDS. The younger the child is, the more devastating the loss. Most nursing infants do not survive more than a few days after losing their mothers. Help provide infant formula for babies whose mothers have died, or are unable to nurse due to HIV/AIDS. Milk and medicine saves lives and prevents abandonment. Along with the life-giving supplies the families are given the Gospel and supported with counseling and prayer.
Seventy-five percent of Zambian young people never get beyond the seventh grade. We provide a solid educational foundation that includes Bible study, character building and moral ethics, transforming our students into productive citizens and Christian leaders. You can provide a scholarship for $200 annually. Sponsors receive a profile and picture. An update from your child is sent at the end of each three month term and you are invited to correspond further, if you desire.
More than one third of Zambia’s primary aged children are unable to attend school because they can’t afford the required shoes, uniform and fees. ACE works with local church congregations to provide schools for children, most of whom are orphans, who would otherwise not have the chance to get an education.
House of Moses is the only home that will accept an infant with fragile health needs. Other places are afraid they may encounter high health care bills. We have an agreement with the University Teaching Hospital for reduced fees, but medical expenses are always an urgent need. Nevertheless, we cannot turn away a child for fear of medical bills. Every one of these little lives is too precious! You may designate your gift for this need by indicating "medical care" in the comments box.
An orphaned or abandoned infant may have only hours to live. An older child faces abuse on the streets. For infants, we give 24/7 nursing care and for older children we give "intensive love" in two safe homes. Through donations and informed prayer and monthly updates, Safety Net Sponsors “adopt” a child. When your child moves into a family, you share the joy – and get to “adopt” another child who also needs extra care through a crisis time.
When we find a family that can be helped toward self-sustainability with the gift of a few dollars we will help them purchase what they need to start that business. These gifts are under $200 and we do not ask that they be repaid but rather that the person help somone else when they are able.
Chronic hunger is epidemic in Zambia where many families can only manage to eat once a day, or even every other day. $20 provides supplemental food for a child. This critical help is given to display the Love of Jesus Christ. Please indicate "feeding" on the comments section of the donate page on our website
