In June of 2000, Greer Kendall traveled back to the country of his birth – Zambia, Africa – for the first time since he had left as a 6-year-old boy. It was a trip that changed everything.

Zambia was a land in crisis, on the brink of destruction and the children were quickly becoming a lost and abandoned generation. The Lord led Greer to incorporate Family Legacy in September of 2000. Since then we have been dedicated to one goal: transforming the nation of Zambia one child at a time.
