Embrace a child—Empower a nation.
We believe that our children hold the keys to the future—both for Zambia and for the world. By providing them with a home that offers nurture and care, we seek to give our children the means to become independent leaders who will transform their nation.
Daughters of Zion International, or DOZIN, is a faith-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that strives to empower, educate, and care for orphaned and abandoned children in Zambia. There are an estimated 1.2 million orphaned children in Zambia, most of whom do not have access to housing, basic healthcare, clean water, and food for every meal. Infants, toddlers, and young children are often abandoned on the streets, deserted in medical facilities, or left in public restrooms. If fortunate, they are placed in overcrowded and underfunded orphanages.
DOZIN wants to change this reality—one child at a time.
Currently, DOZIN's restoration and recovery home provides transitional and permanent care for orphaned, abandoned, and abused children who are in need of immediate intervention and holistic care. Our children are receiving the love and attention found in real homes with real families.
We hope to ensure every child's right to quality education. The children are currently home-schooled, as our existing funds can only cover their primary needs. Our goal is to transition all the children to private schools, and you can help support this mission by sponsoring a child.
Because our children are often abandoned in unhygienic places (such as public latrines), they come to us with a multitude of health conditions. Our children need treatment for parasites, HIV/AIDS, and malnutrition, and we need your support in covering these essential expenses.
