Since our founding, Global Samaritans has focused primarily on the children’s home in Livingstone, Zambia. Our first children arrived in April of 2002 and over the years have had as many as fifty-six children residing at Global Samaritans Children's Home. The children are either double or single orphaned due to the AIDS epidemic which has devastated sub-Saharan Africa. Zambia has been one of the countries hit the hardest. The children are innocent victims of this terrible tragedy and struggle to exist.
Global Samaritans Children’s Home provides food, clothes, a home with stability, medical care, education, family, and the love of Jesus Christ to these children. It is our hope that as the children mature, they will become responsible and productive Christian adults who will mold and shape the future of Zambia and share the love of Jesus Christ with a needy nation.
Our children's home is made up of several family units, each with a group of children and a house mother. These house mothers have come to live at Global Samaritans and are dedicated to raising the children as their own. We have found this model to work well and it helps to re-create a nurturing family structure.
We are continuing to welcome more children to our children's home and are in need of sponsors. Please visit our Child Sponsorship section for more information on how you can become a sponsor.
Our facilities also include a guest house to serve those working on mission trips, an on-site church, high school for grades eight and nine, computer lab, skills training area, recreation complex and a library. Global Samaritans has been able to establish an impeccable and firm presence in Zambia. We have a wonderful relationship with the government officials and business leaders in Livingstone. Global Samaritans is often regarded as one of the best orphanages in southern Zambia.
