Chikumbuso, a grassroots project located in Ng’ombe compound, provides hope and opportunity to some of the most vulnerable women and children in the township. Chikumbuso offers free education for children, adult training and capacity building through micro enterprise opportunities, youth life skills training and outreach to the elderly.
Chikumbuso means Remembrance. We remember those who have died, where we come from and to do for others. Our artists earn a living making beautiful, handcrafted, fashion products for sale both locally and internationally; our school and sponsorship programs educate students and help sustain families; and, our local staff provides counseling and encouragement for those affected by HIV/AIDS.
The Rotary Club of Ludington is spearheading an effort to raise money for this worthy cause and write a series of matching grants through Rotary to maximize the impact of our charitable dollars. Money has been raised by Rotarians locally and around the country to be administered through a partnership with the Rotary Club of Maluba in Lusaka, Zambia. This is a link to a new video that explains the full scope of the club's project:
