On July 18, 2018 there was a Worship Celebration for the Zambia Project held at First Plymouth United Church of Christ.  This was the kickoff for the Church's increased involvement with the project.  Bob Simmering engaged Zambian dancers to be present and folks involved with the project were present.  
 
The Zambian Project is moving forward and moving to the next level.  Having completed a successful four year Global Grant, we anticipate applying for a new grant in an even more impoverished region.  We have set a goal of $50,000 to be matched with Foundation funds.  The Lincoln East Foundation has pledged $3,000 and Beatrice Rotary giving $1,000.  We are looking for additional clubs to join us in this multi-club project.
 
We also plan to continue our nutrition project collaborating with the Zimba District Health Ministry which will focus on the First Thousand Days of Life.  We need to demonstrate that we can prevent stunting which limits physical and mental development.
 
We are seeking funds for this project without a Global Grant.  Please support these projects.
