"How it started...."

Matt Children's Hope Foundation (MCHF) was founded by Mathews Tembo, with more than five years experience working with children serving organisations. He is currently receiving tertiary education in Bachelors Degree in Development Studies in Zambia. With his untamed passion for positive development, he maximised his efforts to focus on the least reached rural lives. Later, with his passion just from a 2017 idea, he organised college and University youth scholars with the common ambition to register an organisation bearing the name 'Matt Children's Hope Foundation'.

The organisation's dream began on Mfuwe, Mambwe district of Chipata town, Eastern province of Zambia, and that was the first experience of the founder to live among rural settlers. In the year 2019, due to vast problems identified in rural Africa, the organisations was registered. Problems include, lack of proper education delivery services, lack of access to proper medical care and facilities, and lack of positive and quality social exposure, among others, child abuse (both girls and boys).

The organisation is developing at a steady speed, having fifty (50) registered children, and reached more than 1100 and twelve active governing team members. We are currently in search of donors, funders and sponsors in order to register and serve more than 3000 children around Mambwe district in the next five years time. We believe in togetherness!  The organisation walk with an inspirational goal as quote "A World of Positive Minds and Free from Poverty"
