Since our founding in 2003 Family Legacy has pursued a God-directed mission to create a positive change in the desperate reality of the orphaned and vulnerable children of Lusaka, Zambia.
Due to the scourge of HIV/AIDS and the extreme poverty that breeds hopelessness and despair, Zambia had become a community predominately comprised of children. In fact, to this day, nearly half of Zambia’s population are children age 14 or under. Zambia was a land in crisis and its children were quickly becoming a lost and abandoned generation. Dedicated to the goal of changing Zambia one child at a time, Family Legacy is recasting the future of this nation. Our work provides for almost 15,000 orphaned and vulnerable children’s lives to be transformed through the saving grace of Jesus Christ and the compassionate hearts of individuals and families sponsoring them to attend one of our twenty-four Legacy Academy Christian schools or a high-quality government school. Among these, more than 700 of the most vulnerable children live in full-time care at the Tree of Life Children’s Village.
