Lifesong Sustainable Business
Beyond our mission to educate, feed, and disciple the children of Zambia, Lifesong is also passionate about providing sustainable business opportunities. These opportunities allow us to work side-by-side with Zambians as we get involved in various business ventures, all with the goal of having businesses that can sustain themselves and the ministry. These business opportunities allow us to help the Zambian economy because we employ the people who live here.
The Lifesong Lodge is located in Kitwe, Zambia, about ten minutes from Lifesong Harmony School. The Lodge has been recently renovated and serves to provide accommodation for both work teams and the public. All the proceeds, after expenses, go back into the ministry. The Lodge is managed and staffed by Zambian locals.
Visitors to the Lodge pay $60/night and are provided with a room and three meals a day, which are prepared at the Roast Café.
The Roast Café is part of Lifesong Lodge. We sell freshly baked goods and coffee to the public and support our community by employing local Zambians and teaching them business skills. Any baked goods that are not sold are donated to various ministries, such as the street kids ministry. We use Gobena Beans (click for more information) for our coffee, which is a ministry whereby all proceeds from the sale of these coffee beans are funneled back into various orphan care ministries around the world.
