We shipped our container!
Saturday the 18th we filled a 40 foot shipping container loaded with boxes of clothing, books, school supplies, bicycles, household goods, and 12 large sofas. Thank you to everyone who dontated items to this container over the last two and a half years, all our doners who contributed towards the cost of shipping the container, and all the volunteers who have worked so hard for the last two and a half years to pack the boxes and everyone who came on Saturday to load the container.

New Video on Point. Shoot. See!
In 2007, Klaus Schoenwiese, a professional photographer based in New York City, traveled to Chishawasha to conduct photography classes with a small group of students. He has created a short video on YouTube that displays the photographs taken and provides the viewer with insights into the lives of these children and his work in Zambia. You can also purchase prints from his website, with proceeds going to benefit CCHZ.
