Help at-risk girls who live at Zambia Home for Girls. Suggested donation: $30/month. If this amount is not in your budget, please give whatever you can.

Lloyd and Mable Bwino help at-risk girls in Zambia Home for GirlsLloyd and Mable Bwino are heroes who rescue at-risk girls from the streets and bring them into their family-style home to care for them and be sure they get love and a good education. Our goal is to help them rent a larger home to take in more girls. You can now sponsor this children’s home that cares for girls like Helen or Mercy.

An at-risk girl who lives at Zambia Home for Girls

Helen is 17 in the 9th grade and she speaks Bemba and English. She came to Zambia with her father as refugees from the Congo. A few years later her father passed away leaving Helen an orphan. Helen has been living from hand-outs and good Samaritans at her church.

At-risk child from Zambia Home for GirlsMercy is the eldest of three girls in her family. She is seven years old and in the third grade. Her father passed away and her mom sells vegetables in the market. With just a single mother, life is tough for this family. She can’t manage to take them to school and they survive on generosity from their church.

Coming soon! In addition to giving for the support of all the girls who live at Zambia Home for Girls, soon you will be able to sponsor an individual child like Mercy or Helen. Stay tuned!

World’s Children is committed to honoring your stated preferences for donations.

Loretta met David Purviance on a chance trip in 2006, while seeking to be of service to the vulnerable children in India.  Since then, Loretta has been a longtime supporter of World’s Children as a donor, sponsor, and previous Board member.  She had the wonderful opportunity to return to India twice to visit several World’s Children orphanages, and even identified the Happy Home orphanage and petitioned to bring it into the WC family. Loretta raised funds to build a well at Happy Home, where it now has clean water for all the children and staff.

Loretta currently works with the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services as the Program Manager for the six Medical Hubs – the child abuse evaluation clinics for the County. She also serves as the Program Manager for the County’s Gender Health Program, serving patients seeking gender-affirming care in a safe environment.  Before her work with Los Angeles County, Loretta spent many years serving non-profit organizations in CA and in MN, her last as the Executive Director of a statewide non-profit in MN. She has a long history of volunteer work including Board Member and Board Chair service, grant writing and fundraising experience, program development, and creative leadership, all serving our most vulnerable and disenfranchised populations.

Loretta holds a Bachelor of Science in Human Services, a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology, and a Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership.  She lives in Los Angeles County with her partner, Myck, and their rescue kitties, Scooter and Thunder.
