The Vima Lupwa Homes Story on Video

Founded in Bend, Oregon by Malerie Pratt, who was a teenager when this story began, Vima Lupwa Homes opened its first home for desperately poor orphans in Mikomfwa, Township of Luanshya, Zambian in 2006.

My friends at Umami Media produced this short documentary:
