Luke and Katie’s Fundraiser for the Children of Zambia

Update posted by Katie Venechuk On Oct 16, 2019

WOW!!! Thank you SO MUCH everyone! I can’t believe we have already FAR SURPASSED our goal of $500 in this effort to raise a donation to further support the children we’ll be working with in Zambia. We’re PROUD to be a part of this community, and we are super grateful to everyone that’s backed this fundraiser! We can’t wait to see all the good that this money will do andto share back with all of you how we’ve come together to make a difference.

We have learned more about our placement! We will be at a pre and primary school called Elicecy. Elicecy is in a very poor area, with electricity just a few hours a day and very few resources, so they do not have an online presence that I am aware of. I can share that there are about 90 children between 2-11 years old. Based on what we know right now, our assignment has us spending most of our time caring for the toddlers, but we’ll also be teaching basic math and English to some of the older children and helping with recreation activities for all the children.

Thank you so much for helping us raise all of this money! We will be keeping the fundraiser open for a few more weeks and will share more after we’ve been at Elicecy for a while. In the meantime, please share this page with anyone that may be interested in contributing and being a part of this!

Thanks so much everyone. 🙏🏻

Love, Katie and Luke
