A vital part of the ministry into Zambia has been the founding of an orphanage, New Beginnings Childrenâ€™s Village in 2009, under the leadership of Pastor Kenny Bisha Goma. Pastor Kenny is the person who initially invited Ken to Zambia and is the pastor of New Beginnings Christian Church in Kafue.
The Australian commitment to New Beginnings Childrenâ€™s Village is a long-term vision. â€œWe envision many children being placed at NBCV over the coming years. The orphanage began with thirty children and we have room for expansion. Also, we will seek to meet all the needs of the children â€“ e.g. physical, spiritual, educational and psychological,â€ said Pastor Ken Legg.
Initial works included the erection of a perimeter fence around the entire property (vital for security for our children), pit latrines, vegetable garden, installation of a water tank ensuring water all the year round, etc.
To give a â€˜hand upâ€™ rather than a â€˜hand outâ€™ is the aim of all support channelled to NBCV. Projects such as the vegetable garden, fruit orchard, chicken run and a planned corn grinding service all help to make NBCV more self-sustainable.
Help Us Complete the Work
We give God all the glory for what has been accomplished through the compassionate giving of His people in Australia and other parts of the world. Our Australian operations manager, Ros van der Vooren and her team have worked tirelessly and diligently to ensure we do the very best we can for our children.
There are still many projects to be completed. If you would like to know more about our orphanage and how you may help, please visit our New Beginnings Childrenâ€™s Village
