This year, the students of Divine Savior Academy gave??their mission offerings to the Kuanda Square School, operated by Vulnerable Children???s Foundation. Our goal has been to give $20,000. This amount would??fund 100% of the operating costs of the Kuanda Square School for an entire year. So far our students have raised??$8,705.91 of our $20,000 goal.??
Our PreK-12th grade students will have one more opportunity to give a chapel offering on Friday morning, May 22nd. Please consider sending an offering with your child to support the students of the Kuanda Square School!??

The mission of the Edgar H. and Meta A. Hoenecke Vulnerable Children???s Foundation Inc. is to fund the construction and operation of schools owned and operated by congregations of the Lutheran Church of Central Africa (LCCA). The Foundation seeks to place vulnerable children of Zambia into a Christian educational setting while they are young to educate them for productive lives on earth and share with them the saving message of Jesus Christ for eternity. ??
The Kuanda Square School in Lusaka, Zambia serves nearly 250 children who are considered ???vulnerable??? by the foundation. ??This means that the children are either orphans (lost one parent) or double orphaned (lost both parents).??Some children orphaned by AIDS are adequately cared for by relatives or friends. They have stable home environments and access to education. Even though they are orphans, many would not call these children vulnerable.
Many children, however, are vulnerable whether they are orphaned or not. These children, due to economic status, abandonment by parents, or death of family members have no access to food, housing, or education. They have no hope for a future on earth. This pales, in comparison, with the spiritual condition of their souls. These children are also vulnerable due to their spiritual condition. The schools of the Vulnerable Children???s Foundation not only provide for the physical needs of its students, but also for the spiritual needs of its students by sharing the gospel message with them.??
???For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son
that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life??? (John 3:16).??
