The project

Give a little joy to the street boys living in Ciloto! This is the place in Makululu, the largest slum in Africa, where the „Don Bosco Makululu Children’s Home” is located. More than 80 children, of aged between 7 and 18, currently live here. They come from dysfunctional families, where there is no concept of love and security for the child. Often abandoned and excluded by their families, they have been forced to live on the streets, where some of them, under the influence of their environment, have succumbed to addictions to various substances. In Ciloto, the boys find a home where they receive food and water, are provided with an education, which gives them a great opportunity for a better future. Here they can safely spend their nights in bed instead of on the dangerous streets. They have a chance to be children, to play, learn, develop and dream about simple things.

With the money raised, we plan to buy clothes, medicine, school supplies and items to support artistic development. The boys often come to the center straight from the street, not having any things with them, so a huge need is to buy clothes. Basic medicines for cough or fever are also needed. We also want to provide the boys with pens, pencils, crayons, paper, scissors or markers, whatever we can buy in Zambia to organize activities.

The project will be carried out in Ciloto by volunteers Małgorzata Kuchta, Sylwia Deperasińska and Agata Januszewska.

Ciloto means dream, so help our boys make their dreams come true!

On behalf of the boys and ourselves, thank you very much for your support!
