We just love what the teachers are doing to make a difference in the lives of orphans at Lake Tanganyika. This school provides six classes per day for over 100 orphans in Zambia. The school also provides breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday, school uniforms, and teachers help the students to learn life skills like reading, writing, math, and more. Most importantly, the children and are told every day that God loves them and they are shown that love through the attention and devotion of the teachers.
