Background

For some years, Judith Milumbe Horntvedt, had a dream to help children and women in need in her home country, Zambia. She asked her sister, Kildah Milumbe Munsanje, to help making the dream come true.

The sisters contacted the church in the Chisamba area outside the capital Lusaka. The church had been built by Judith. The church doubled as a school building.

The sisters have organised and run a preschool and primary school. The school, named Mayaki Caritas, is financed by private funds. Over time, the buildings have been expanded, and by year-end 2018, a new school building has been erected. The school building provides includes pre-school, a first grade class room, an office, an outside chicken pen and toilet. The plan is to expand to include facilities for up to seventh grade.
