Home information: Mupeta is growing up in the rural town of Luanshya in the Copperbelt Province of Zambia. He lives with his mother and three of his siblings. He has four other siblings, two of whom are married and two of whom live with relatives. Their father passed away. Mupeta’s mother supports their family by working in people’s gardens. Mupeta helps at home by washing plates.
School information: Mupeta has not attended school before. Sponsorship will support him at the Haven of Hope Luanshya Primary School, where he will start grade 1 in January 2022. There, he will receive an education, learn about the love of God, and receive meals, medical care, and clothing. In Zambia, primary school lasts for seven years and is followed by five years of secondary school. Mupeta is excited to begin attending school.
Community information: Haven of Hope's students in Luanshya live in a number of compounds (densely populated communities). In the compounds, unemployment and poverty rates are high, and people primarily depend on menial jobs for survival—working, for example, as garden hands, maids, and small-scale farmers. Families tend to be large and live in small houses. The compounds have been greatly afflicted by HIV and AIDS, leaving many children without one or both of their biological parents. Orphaned children are often cared for by their grandparents, aunts, or uncles; other children live in child-headed homes. Living in poverty, most families struggle to meet their basic needs and afford school fees for their children.
Prayer requests: Mupeta and his family request prayer for good health.
