Our Story

Hi, we are Elizabeth and Amanda the co-founders of The Kukhoma Project. While working for another non-profit organization in Lusaka, Zambia, God put on our hearts a specific calling. In the summer of 2017, He burdened our hearts with thousands of girls in the city who were victims of sexual abuse that had and subsequently become pregnant. Despite being so large in number, this group of children was being ignored with virtually no care facilities or organizations existing to save them. Along with this burden came a vision; a vision of a home that was not only safe, but one of rehabilitation, including counselling, discipleship, skills/trade training, and partnerships with schools for ongoing education. This place would even teach self-sustainability for the programs and engage other women in the community in efforts to empower them.
