A Gift that Will Change the World

Fashion Show 2013 - Agriculture in Action

Feeding 9,000 children and empowering 1,000 women isn't an easy task.   Although we are already on our way -- we need YOUR help!  On Friday, February 8th, Anchor of Hope Charities will be hosting another Fashion Show fundraiser at the Indianapolis Yacht Club.  

This year our goal is to raise $8,500 so we can move forward with our agriculture program.  You see, we've already acquired the land we need for this program.  We have partnered with the U.S. Embassy in Lusaka, the University of Zambia, the Zambian Farmers Union, and 10 tribal chiefs.  We have chosen the women who will participate.  

Now it's time to bring our plans to action.   One of the first steps is to gain access to water so our crops can grow.  In order to do this, we will have to dig at least 3 bore holes on our farming property.  (Each hole costs $5,000.)  We also need to build fences, clear the land, sample the soil, educate the women...and more.

So,  join us for another night of fashion and fun -- and help us keep our agriculture program moving forward!

Even if you can't attend the fashion show, you can still help support our agriculture program.  Just click below to make an online donation.

Thank you!

Many, many thanks for your support of Anchor of Hope Charities!   Your generosity has allowed us successes beyond our wildest dreams and we wanted to share them with you. 

We have partnered with the University of Zambia, the Zambian Farmers Union, the U.S. Embassy, area headsman, and NASAD in our program to Empower Women and Feed the Hungry through AGRICULTURE.   Here are some of the women participating in our program in 2012:  

We continue to build:  These schools are being built in the Central Region of Zambia, Africa, with completion dates expected in 2013.  Both will serve underprivileged and orphaned children grades K - 7. 

We continue to put shoes on the feet of children:   Each year, we provide shoes to 25,000 children at 62 schools. We work with over 100 volunteers in the U.S. and abroad to put shoes on the feet of children in the areas of Choma, Chibombo, Keembe, Livingston, Siavonga and Lusaka.

We welcome you to make our story – YOUR STORY!   Join us next year on one of our scheduled trips to Zambia, Africa.  Be part of a team that is focused on building schools, planting crops, teaching children, or providing much needed shoes for children. Or participate stateside by joining us in hosting next year’s fundraisers!
