Orphan Care

Wiphan provides education for 900 orphans and vulnerable children in Africa.  Wiphan operates  three schools located in the compounds (slums) of Ndola, Zambia. In the Wiphan Kenya community, orphans receive financial support to attend government schools.  Many elementary-age children in the compounds, especially orphans, are unable to attend school. Wiphan schools  offer a 1st-7th grade education, Bible instruction, teachers who nurture and care for the students, a daily school lunch, basic medical care and a safe place during the day.  

Wiphan teaches the government school  curriculum and includes Biblical instruction using Community Bible Study International (CBSI) materials. An education combined with the saving grace of Jesus Christ is key in overcoming the cycle of poverty.

Wiphan serves over 126,600 hot lunches each year. Three Wiphan cooks prepare lunch each weekday, including school breaks. Many students depend on lunch at school for their daily meal.

Similar to the lunch program which continues to operate during school breaks, two nurses from community medical clinics keep the children healthy and are available each week to treat malaria, upper respiratory infections, cuts, injuries, ring worm and other common illnesses. For many households in the compounds, money and access to medical care can be difficult. Clinics at Wiphan provide opportunities for free, convenient medical care.
