WHO WE ARE

WE ARE HELPING HANDS

Sishemo Foundation, a faith-based organization (FBO), was born out of the desire to see people reach their fullest potential in all areas of their lives. The Foundation falls under The EMPOWER of Congress WBN, a unique, faith-based organization effecting human, social and national transformation in nations throughout the earth.

The mission of Sishemo Foundation is to create EMPOWER-ed Communities for sustainable development. The development approach for the Foundation is that of empowerment. Sishemo Foundation seeks to present solutions to prospective supporters or donors. Our focus is to present strength and solutions that empower the communities where we are working. For this reason, we seek to collaborate with like-minded organizations or individuals in order to manage the problems confronting development in in communities.

When Sishemo was established in 1997 by a group of women who belong to Restoration Ministries in Lusaka, its primary objectives were two-fold:

  1. To contribute to the national efforts aimed at mitigating the impact and the devastating effects of the HIV/AIDS pandemic on Orphans and other Vulnerable Children (OVC) and their parents or guardians, especially the widows.
  2. To improve the food security status of female-headed and youth headed households (particularly infected or affected), which has worsened in recent years.

The organisation has since grown and now operates various community development initiatives through four main prongs:

1. Education

2. Health

3. Agriculture

4. Community Development
