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.

Our students have 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.

A wonderful team of local Zambian staff including teachers, guards, cooks and a Project Coordinator are employed to run the school. 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.

“Being sponsored by Our Rainbow House has been really great and beneficial because, without it, my education could have been disturbed.  I really appreciate the hard work of Our Rainbow House because this encouragement has brought great hope to our future. I feel very happy that I am sponsored by a reliable organisation and that they provide all my needs. Now I don’t think that I have any disadvantage with my education. ”
