Changing Lives from Birth to Graduation
Sustaining the Miracle of Life:
House of Moses Crisis Nursery
The miracle of life is sustained through Alliance for Children Everywhere’s secure child welfare programs. After birth, both Theodore and Mabel were abandoned in separate latrines miles apart. After their challenging beginnings, they were simultaneously admitted to the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka.
Miraculously, the tiny babies survived and were stabilized under the observation and medical care of hospital staff.
After they grew strong enough, the pair were admitted to the House of Moses Crisis Nursery. Upon arrival at the hospital, Theodore weighed 2.6 kilograms, while Mabel weighed a mere 2.2 kilograms.
These two beautiful children are now thriving physically and emotionally under the loving care of the House of Moses caregivers and nurses.
The mission of this temporary home is to provide crisis care to children until it is possible to safely reintegrate them with extended family or place them into foster or foster-to-adopt homes. Social workers are actively assessing the situation of each child and working with ACE’s staff on a daily basis.
Witnessing the miraculous survival of such tiny lives is something that never grows mundane.
It is a wonderful comfort to know that the experienced House of Moses staff and facilities will offer the nurturing care required for these two babies to grow stronger and develop in a healthy way during their greatest time of vulnerability.

Edwin and Nola Stewart Scholarship Recipients:
Inspired Towards Their Futures
As a student, when you know you are well supported and someone believes in you and the potential of your future, it can change your life.
This past May, five Helen DeVos Christian School (HDCS) juniors (four pictured at right) were given the support they needed to complete their secondary education through the gift of a Stewart Scholarship.
The Stewart Scholarship program was established in 2014 and is designed to fund and support students, propelling them towards a more promising future.
The group of scholars complete a service project throughout the year and presented the impact of their chosen project to the grade 12 teachers. In addition, each student maintained academic excellence throughout the school year and passed their national exams. All of the scholars exhibited exceptional character and displayed great leadership and creativity.
Head Teacher, Mr. Kangwa, presented all five thankful and energized recipients with their scholarships at the senior graduation ceremony. Several scholarship board members and teachers were in attendance at the event.
Each of the five students plan to attend college or university for the next phase of their education.
One of the students shared how grateful they are for Alliance for Children Everywhere, the HDCS school, and the generous donors who help provide funds towards their education. Student Helen Mwaya said,
We owe a great thank you. May our good Lord Jesus Christ continue blessing the ACE organization and all the partners, through His hands and feet.
