Vima Lupwa Homes

The goal and premise of VIMA LUPWA HOME is the “whole village” approach, rather than being institutionalized in an orphanage, this is a home for children where they are raised in their own culture, in a home parented by a Zambian couple; education is in the Zambian community along with the other children of Mikomfwa, eating typical Zambian food and speaking their own language – all in an effort to empower them in their own culture and to become self-sustaining leaders/members of their community.
"Therefore, we pledge to bind ourselves to one another . . . to feed our starving, to clothe our ragged, to do all good things, knowing that we are more than keepers of our brothers and sisters. We are our brothers and sisters."
Maya Angelou




Four kids

Vima Lupwa Home opened in December 2006. The small home provides a safe, loving family atmosphere in which the basic needs of 14 children are met, including proper nutritious meals, beds, clothing, education, health care and most importantly - love and by parents Violet Membe and 
her husband, Mr. Mwala.
