Lemekani is one of three children in his family. He has one brother and one sister. He lives with his parents and siblings in a three-room mud-brick house with dirt floors and a metal roof, in Lusaka, Zambia. He is in grade nine at Kasisi Primary School and his best subject is Science. His favourite activities are listening to music and playing soccer with his friends. At home, he helps with the cooking chores and collects firewood for his family. Lemekani wants to become a police officer. At the Serenje Sponsor Site, the Sisters of Mary Immaculate provide children with school fees and materials, as well as proper nutrition and other basic needs. Parents and guardians attend business training workshops to learn how to supplement their incomes.

A SPECIAL NOTE TO SPONSORS FROM THE USA. We will send you a receipt for income tax purposes following the end of each calendar year. Chalice is not a registered charity in the USA, but Canada and the USA do have a tax treaty which allows a tax deduction under certain conditions. Basically, a resident of the USA may be eligible to claim a deduction against taxable income received from Canada. Please consult a qualified financial advisor to review your own personal situation. You can still sponsor if you don't require an official income tax receipt. We have many sponsors from the USA and we send them our heartfelt thank you.
