About Us

Equipping orphans in Zambia with the resources and homes they need have great quality lives as well as an environment where they will learn about everlasting life in Jesus Christ, Zambian Mission Project believes that giving orphans homes and hope will change their lives. We put this belief into practice by partnering with our sister organization Christ Heart Transforming Ministries International near Lusaka, Zambia to build orphan homes.

In the past years, HIV/AIDs, sex trafficking, and poor health environments have contributed to the Zambian orphan rate. Zambian Mission Project works to equip orphans with the basic necessities of water, food, shelter, and hope to provide lifelong skills.

Because the orphan rate in Zambia is so high, Zambian Mission Project is more dedicated than ever to our mission: Raise awareness and funds to give Zambian orphans the homes and resources they need to have a quality life, as well as an environment where they will learn about everlasting life in Jesus Christ.

We focus on spreading Jesus’ unconditional love by helping all orphans regardless of denomination, faith, or lack of faith in and around the Lusaka area.

You can help us give orphans homes, resources, and hope!

Our Story

In the summer of 2015, a young man named Sandwell Zgambo from Zambia came to Minden, Nebraska to serve an internship at the Minden Evangelical Free Church. At the time he was a masters student at Moody Bible Seminary. During that internship,a number of church members became good friends with Sandwell. He shared with them his story of being orphaned at the age of 9 when his mother, who had been divorced and left with 3 young boys, died from HIV. He also shared with them a vision he had fo returning to Zambia to start a gospel ministry to orphans in Zambia. Inspired by this vision, a small group of friends of Sandwell formed an organization and named it Zambian Mission Project. Their initial goal was simply to partner with a Zambian based organization started by Sandwell and to buy land and build orphan houses to care for orphans in a rural part of Zambia. Over time, their vision of orphan care has developed into one where a Community Care Center would be established on the land. This Center would be a place where the needs of orphans and at risk children in the surrounding community would be identified and ministered to. Additionally, the Center land would be developed into a self-sustaining agricultural center that eventually could potentially help to fund the starting of new centers elsewhere in rural Zambia.
