Child Action

Child Action is a Non-Government Organization founded in 2006 by Isaiah Njimbu after graduation from Africa University with a sociology degree, when he returned home to Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Isaiah was supported by Oak Ridge UMC with a full scholarship to Africa University for two years.

Child Action has been sanctioned by the Southern Katanga Province United Methodist Bishop. Isaiah is currently in the process of submitting an application to UM GBGM, New York City, for financial support for this mission in nearby Kasungami, DRC where approximately 20,000 people reside. The original purpose of this organization was to provide primary and secondary education for children whose parents died from HIV/AIDS, who reside in Kasungami and attend Nazareth United Methodist Church.

The Child Action program has grown from providing education and clothing for the orphaned children of Kasungami to providing wells for drinking water, medical services such as visiting nurses and doctors, facility for expectant mothers, a facility to care for the sick, vaccines and the development of a subsistence farming program so the residents can raise nutritional food for their own consumption and sell it to earn an income.

Ministry coordinators are Ed and Bev Wentz.
