In our schools, a Zambian Child Sponsorship Officer is assigned to every 30 children in our program. Our CSO’s are Arise Africa’s boots on the ground, caring for children, teachers, and families every single school day. They are mentors, parents, friends, and whoever our children need them to be.
These officers take on the extremely difficult task of leading our students in a daily discipleship class, walking them home, keeping up with each child’s studies and home life, and remaining in close contact with their families. They do all of this while keeping Christ at the center of their efforts.
