Winter warmer appeal!

With the cold months approaching, we are setting out to give our students a boost as they go into winter. The homes of our students often have no electricity and bedding may consist of reed mats on the floor. Our students are vulnerable, many of them orphans, and are living with guardians who are doing their best.

Our primary school has expanded this year and our 2023 intake of 29 students are yet to receive mattresses and blankets. 

$150 could purchase a foam mattress and two blankets. Your donation will help Our Rainbow House purchase these items for our new students. Any additional funds raised will be used to purchase extra blankets to help keep our students warm this winter. These will be shared with their families and will be so appreciated.

All donations graciously accepted.

Donations over $2 are tax-deductible in Australia. 

about us

Our Rainbow House is a registered charity in both Australia and Zambia.

Our charity is committed to providing quality education and nutrition to orphans and vulnerable children in a village on the outskirts of Lusaka, Zambia.

We offer our students the opportunity to learn in a safe environment where they are taught the Zambian National Curriculum. In addition to this, all students receive two meals a day during school and are provided with mealie-meal for the school holidays.

We employ a wonderful team of local Zambian staff including teachers, guards, cooks and a Project Coordinator. We also have staff and dedicated volunteers that administer the charity from our Australian office in Emerald, QLD.

Our Rainbow House is a member of the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) and as such, we are committed to full adherence to the ACFID Code of Conduct.
