The Kafakumba Development Projects Fund works with other ministries to support the work at Kafakumba. Here are short summaries of these other ministries along with links to their websites.
The Limapela Foundation
The Limapela Foundation was established in New Zealand in 2008 for the benefit of education in poorer communities in Zambia. The Limpela Cedric’s Basic School, near Kitwe in the Copperbelt Province, is the Foundation’s first project. This is being overseen by Limapela Development Limited, the Foundation’s legal entity in Zambia. This primary school was established in 1979 by Cedric Whittemore to provide education for the children of his employees. Today the school serves the wider community and has a roll of 280 children. Limapela is expanding and upgrading the school facilities so that up to 500 children can be enrolled in grades 1–9. Other schools will be assisted and new schools started by Limapela as funding and resources become available. Learn more about Limapela at http://www.limapela.org/news/.
Kick HIV/AIDS Out of Africa
Kick HIV/AIDS Out of Africa was started by Josh Davies and Anna Davies to distribute soccer balls to the Pastors who attend the Kafakumba Pastors' School. The project is based on two very simple observations: first, soccer is immensely popular in sub-Saharan Africa, and people of all ages often go to great lengths to be able to play with a regulation-style soccer ball; and second, HIV/AIDS is a big problem across sub-Saharan Africa, and there is a great need for public education about its biological basis and prevention. To tie the two together, and to bring attention to community needs, Josh and Anna started this program in 2004. They discovered that the pastors who had the soccer balls were drawing much larger groups of people to their seminars about HIV/AIDS than those who did not. A website is currently under construction at www.kickhivaidsoutofafrica.org.
