SHELTER

Shelter

We recognise that many of our children and young adults are struggling to find anywhere to live on a permanent basis.  Many have either no family or serious issues with what family they do have including physical, mental and sadly sometimes sexual abuse.  These children really do have nowhere to go.

Future Pillars (Zambia) rent two basic houses in Bwacha compound.  One is known as the Boys’ House and the other is the Girls’ House.  They are designed for six occupants over three rooms and each has a simple living area, a kitchen, an outside shower/wash block and a small garden to grow some vegetables.  Each has a head of house, usually the most senior in age or outlook.  There is a rota so that everyone takes their turn to clean and cook.
