Geoffrey Kamutande the executive Director of living hope foundation helped to start the organisation in 1996.The organisation was formed on the concept of love to help the vulnerable but intelligent children.
I was born in 1960 and grew up in eastern province ,chief Munkhanya at Nsabo village.Having come to Lusaka in 1994 i worked in various companies and and also studied project planning and management at the university of Zambia and went on to work in sales and marketing.
In 1996 i saw the devastating trend of HIV/AIDS which prompted me with 10 other members to form a non governmental organisation known as shanty community development organization order to help the orphans and other vulnerable children be given some form of basic education .In the year 2000 we started a primary school in Roma from grade 1-7. In 2009 when added grade 8 and 9.
The organization has two centers now,Roma centre and LIHOF school at kalindi village in Mumbwa – Nangoma
My passion is to work with children and provide a holistic approach in caring for them .We provide education ,shelter as an orphanage/transit home ,feeding the school children etc.This passion is derived from JOHN 21:15-17 where we are called to love those in need .
For me i take it that having a good memory also means never forgetting those in need.
Therefore i want to persuade and urge all those want to persuade and urge all those who want to leave a legacy to consider providing assistance to this noble cause .We are thankful for every help rendered no matter how small it may be ,we sincerely appreciate
