‘Ministry to the Deaf’ is our newest program in Ndola, Zambia and at the Seeds of Hope Transition House, which is located on Twalichulilie Lane (literally means “our suffering is over” in Bemba, the local language) in Ndola, Zambia. While the main purpose of the transition house is to provide hosing for Seeds of Hope graduates as they learn how to budget, shop, garden, cook and more while waiting to get into post-high school studies, twice a week we open it to run our “Ministry to the Deaf”, which provides a safe haven, where good nutrition and educational support is available.
Let us introduce Patrick, who is one of the children who this ministry helps. Patrick, along with 10 of his friends, come to our program for the deaf from Nkwazi, a local township where life is extraordinarily hard for deaf persons, leaving the vulnerable and often victims of abuse. Even though Patrick is smart, he sadly had to drop out of school as there was no one to teach him in a way he could understand. Patrick has a big heart but struggles with finding his way in life. Through our program, Patrick was able to re-enroll in his studies and finds reprieve and encouragement as he learns in a supportive, safe environment.
Also, since it very hard to learn on an empty stomach, every week as part of our program we portion out delicious soya, bananas, bread buns, peanut butter & eggs to each of our learners.
We also help to provide school supplies, tutoring for their studies, as well as nutritional supplements!
We are grateful for a team from Wyoming who will be traveling to Zambia to minister and teach sign language to this group of deaf kids!
